Hallstatt holiday rentals
Nestled between the Hallstätter See and Dachstein mountains, Austria’s oldest village is a magical place in the Salzkammergut Lake Region. This town is also full of history, as it was already established during the iron age! Described as ‘the most beautiful lake town in the world’ by Alexander von Humboldt, you won’t be disappointed by the surroundings when you book a holiday home in Hallstatt.
Experience life like a local when you rent a holiday home in Hallstatt
To get the most out of what Hallstatt has to offer when you stay here, start the day by visiting the quaint market square early in the morning like a local, where you will find a selection of traditional Austrian shops and market stalls, so you can really experience local life here. Then you could test out your photography skills and capture the delightful houses built into the mountain, the clear and almost transparent lake and the stunning mountain landscape, perfect in any season. If you still want more photography opportunities or just a relaxing walk, then take a nature walk through the Echerntal trail. By doing this you will experience the same sights that made thousands of artists fall in love with Hallstatt, and hopefully you as well when you rent a holiday home here. There is even a Panorama trail that offers an amazing view of the whole town!
