Hallstatt must be one of the most beautiful places on earth! Definitely puzzle photo material!
I arrived by train on the far side of the lake, then I caught a ferry across the lake to Hallstatt. As I got closer and closer Hallstatt looked like a magical fairyland! Breathtaking in every direction!
It was easy finding my hotel and after I got settled in I started walking up and down the beautiful paths throughout Hallstatt. There were lots of tourists everywhere, so I caught a small boat and got away from the crowds so I could truly enjoy these spectacular views in peace. Great choice!
While Hallstatt is absolutely stunning ... it doesn't take long to see it. Two nights were perfect for me. Then onto Salzburg for more adventures
I stayed at the wonderful Cafe Restaurant zum Muhlbach hotel in the heart of Hallstatt. I felt like a relative of theirs from the moment I walked in! They welcomed me, easily checked me in and carried my luggage up the steep stairs to the 2nd level and settled me in my cozy room! They also served wonderful food there.
I paid a moderate $85 USD for one night for a single room. Excellent stay!
