Half Day Tour to Hallstatt in the Lakes region
Start the journey travelling through the famous Salzkammergut (Lake district) to Hallstatt known as the “Pearl of the Salzkammergut”, passing many local villages on route which introduce you to the local area. On arrival in Hallstatt it is hard to know where to start, perhaps with a mountaintrain ride up to the “World Heritage View” viewing platform, giving you both a magnificent view and helping you understand how Hallstatt started life. Take a leisurely lakeside walk seeing how the houses above you cling onto the mountainside, pass by the Mullbach waterfall which allowed Hallstatt somewhere to grow. A visit to the local museum is also interesting (optional) or a visit to the “Bone House” behind the Catholic church, proving an interesting view into local family life. We then travel back via Abtenau and Russbach to Gosau, where the Gosau lake is located. This lake is famous for its beautiful view onto the Dachstein Mountain Area.
