From Mountain to Lake Salt Mine & Guided Tour of Hallstatt


Inspiring and fascinating: First you will walk into the depths of the salt mine in search of “white gold”, then you will visit yet another, equally as captivating treasure: the town of Hallstatt. Famous explorer and naturalist Alexander von Humboldt once described Hallstatt as "probably the most beautiful lakeside town on Earth". During a guided walk through the medieval lanes and old town center of Hallstatt, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, you will experience first-hand exactly what he meant. Picturesque squares, romantic streets, breathtaking views – nobody can deny the romantic untamed beauty of Hallstatt and its surroundings. On this tour lasting about 90 minutes, you will walk in the footsteps of the “Man in Salt” and conclude with a visit to the eerily beautiful Hallstatt Charnel House.
