Tucked away in the mountains of Austria you’ll find the tiny town of Hallstatt.

Hallstatt and its population of less than 1000 residents rest on the southwestern shore of the Hallstätter Sea.

In addition to the picturesque view of the town on the lake, tourists can see the world’s first salt mine, enjoy nearby skiing, take a trip to the World Heritage Museum, and visit the Dachstein ice cave. Though this village is very small, there are a few different hotels and restaurants to choose from.
