After touring the salt mines we spent the afternoon browsing in shops, enjoying fresh made crepes at a local stand, and walking through the winding streets viewing the architecture. Wish we had more than one day to explore.

Halstatt is a fairytale Austrian village, easy to cover in a short walk. Everywhere you turn is another postcard photograph to take, whether looking at the mountains or the Hallstatter See. The center of the village has plenty of spots to sit and enjoy conversation or scenery with fellow travelers or locals, or for quiet reflection.

This was right outside our hotel and where they have the town's celebrations. They were preparing for something the day we left (2011), so unfortunately, we didn't get to see it.

Lovely place to visit and see some really old places. Good place for buying some unique souvenirs too. Some good restaurants on the lake. Evening sunset is just gorgeous.
