Hallstatt - A Village with a Clone

A picture paints a thousand words. So without further ado, here's Hallstatt.

What to do in Hallstatt, Austria:
"You want to be alone? In three minutes you are in solitude. Thoughtful? Visit the charnel house. Inquisitive? Hallstatt has two museums. Prefer social contact? Then simply choose: tennis, sauna, fishing, rowing, swimming, boat rides, grill courses, camping, hiking and mountaineering, lake concerts, town-square concerts, evenings of local culture, excursions in the surrounding area...? Even our Hallstatt Theme Trail can offer only a few glimpses of the depth of our history. But perhaps it would help you to discover the special flair of this unique town with a little background knowledge." Rudolf Lehr, journalist and Hallstatt resident by choice 

How to get to Hallstatt:
By train: Take the train to Attnang Puchheim from Salzburg Hauptbanhof then transfer to the local train for Hallstatt. Take the ferry from Hallstatt railway station to the village.
