Such a pleasure to visit European stations like this that are easy to negotiate and you don't feel lost or left wondering where to go. Clean and efficient, we could find our platform each time even on our first visit.

We went to the station to find out how you travel to Hallstatt, found it modern with lots of shops and things to eat. Easy to navigate and to find. Travel must be a pleasure.

This is a great train Station not hard to find your way around.if your staying at the old town taxi is probably your best option.There is a supermarket inside which comes in handy for just about anything you need.
