Located between Salzburg and Graz, in the Salzkammergut Lake District of Austria, Hallstatt is a little town of breathtaking views. Considered to be the oldest still inhabited settlement in Europe, Hallstatt is a UNESCO heritage site and an important Austrian tourist attraction.
Its name is “borrowed” from the Hallstatt culture, the predominant Central European Culture during the early Iron Age. An old cemetery was found in the little town which is said to date back to those times.Also known as “the Pearl of Austria”, Hallstatt is truly spectacular, due to its “guardian of the Hallstättersee lake” status and the beautiful mountains surrounding it.
