Hallstatt itself is worth the visit, it's place in culture and history cemented by the mining of salt for millennia. A tour of the mines, the museum are worthy and manageable in less than one day.
If you are an out of doors person, then the lake itself, and the mountains and their trails will beckon you to explore. The tram to the top of the Kreppenstein allows hiking in three seasons and skiing in the winter. The Ice Cave or Mammoth Cave allow for different adventure.
Great little towns and gasthaus' beckon one to stay and meander for longer than you may have. This region is sleepy compared to some, but another great slice of mountain life to others.
