When arriving by train you need to get the ferry across the lake to the town. The guys running the ferry are kind enough but you'll quickly realise that they're your bags so you must put them on and take them off. No problem. It's a beautiful scenic cruise. Cost is E10 return per adult. You can go back and... More

It was very crowded and no area to park when we drove through Hallstatt. Just stopped long enough for a few photo opps. The lake and mountains are beautiful! It is a must see location if you are in the area. This village is the most photographed village in Austria and it is one of the oldest villages--just beautiful!!!

We have had a lovely stay here, it's beautiful. Just a word of advice, beware of pick pockets operating in this area. We have seen 2 men working together, take money from a group of Chinese tourists and the next day came into our hotel and try to take out of a Chinese womans handbag. We told the staff and... More

We took the cruise around the Southern side of the lake. The views are splendid and breathtaking. Seeing Hallstatt from the lake adds to the picture!

The boat trip is take time around 50 minutes trip, you can get beautiful view from the lake. However if you have fixed schedule (go with tour group) and not too much time, it is not a good choice. It may be better to spend time to walking along the road back and forth in Halstatt. By the way, if... More

Hallstaettersee - the most beautiful lake I've experienced anywhere in Austria. I alighted from the train at Hallstatt platform and crossed the lake by ferry to the opposite side where the old town stands, clinging to the cliffs. The short ferry ride itself was an exhilarating 10 minute experience. I wandered right through the old town, and was amazed at... More

Very nice and unique town with boutique atmosphere. The must if you come to Austria. Check the weather before coming, if there is a rain. You cannot see the top of the mountain.
