Lake
“Journey of discovery for short-stay guests Visitors from all over the world are attracted each year to the "most beautiful lake town in the world", as Hallstatt was once dubbed by the researcher and world traveller Alexander von Humboldt in the early 19th century: From the market square in Hallstatt you are just a short walk away from one of the most beautiful photo points in Europe. It is the unique main view of Hallstatt, which delighted tourists capture for everlasting memories; both in summer as well as under a thick blanket of snow. However it is not just this unique photo point that short-stay guests appreciate, but also the romantic alleyways, cosy cafés and the numerous little shops ”

“Incredible views, and a lovely circular hike which takes about 3 to 4 hours, is very easy. Starting and finishing at The Lodge just by the top of the lift station. You will walk through plateaus of stone, through to lush forests. Don't forget to go to the Five Fingers viewing platform, and see if you can spot the "shark" ! A great hike for kids who want to do a half days hike, do take plenty of sun cream and water though in high summer as there are no huts en route.”
