Hallstatt Tour from Salzburg
US$67.13
Overview

Discover the magic of the alpine region of Salzkammergut on this 5.5 hour coach tour of Hallstatt, departing from Salzburg.At Hallstatt you have about 2.5 hours free time.Take a walk along a lake in a historic village, see the Muhlbach Waterfall , visit the museums and the famous bone house.Optional take a ride with the cable car to the Hallstatt World Heritage Skywalk towering 380 meters above. A guide will fill you in on the region’s history on you ride to Hallstatt, stopping for views the spectacular mountain ranges. Nature buffs won't want to miss this experience.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at Mirabellplatz in Salzburg, and then travel around the Salzkammergut’s clear waters toward Hallstatt, known to locals as ‘Pearl of the Salzkammergut.’
In Hallstatt, walk to the salt mine cable railway for a brief ride to vantage point towering 380 meters above Hallstatt. (please note the viewing platform skywalk accessible only by the cable car is optional and at own expense, but your supplier will have a special deal with you cheaper than local prices in case you opt to enjoy the views) At the top, learn how some 7,000 years of salt mining has shaped Hallstatt’s history, and admire panoramic views of the UNESCO-listed Dachstein region.
Return to town and stroll along Hallstatt Lake. Observe the colorful baroque style homes sprinkled on the mountainside as you walk to Muhlbach Waterfall. Here, delve into the history of Hallstatt, whose prosperity during the early European Iron Age attributed to the era’s name: the Hallstatt Period.
Grab lunch at a cafe (own expense), and continue to Hallstatt Bone House (Beinhaus), in the charnel house behind a Catholic church. Admission is at your own expense, but the sight of some 1,200 human skulls — many hand-painted and organized into family groups — is eerily worth the entry.
Finish with a coach ride to Gosau Lake, and enjoy the view of rising mountains of Dachstein. Your tour then finishes back at Mirabellplatz.

Daytripping to Hallstatt

On my recent trip to Munich I took the train to Salzburg and after seeing pictures of Halstatt, decided I wanted to see this scenic village. Since I was not renting a car and there was not a direct transport to Halstatt, I chose Panorama...More

Excellent tour

Hallstatt itself is a very picturesque village and lived up to expectations. When first arriving, everyone jumps off and starts madly taking photos, but the best photo is taken from the other side of the village, which is about 15 minutes walk through the village....More

Worth doing but very Busy

Very popular place during peak season. Certainly worth the shoulder to shoulder crowd. Magnificent scenery. Fair distance from Salzburg so be prepared for coach ride. In inclement weather would think twice about making the trip

Don't miss Hallstatt!!

This is a small, beautiful town in the Lake District of Austria. About 1.5 hrs drive from Salzburg and you are in Hallstatt. It's worth taking cable car to top of mountain as view from there is breath taking. We were lucky to have clear...More

We wanted to see the lake country and Hallstatt, but wondered if this tour would leave us enough time - it was perfect! Our guide, Max, and driver, Andy, did an excellent job weaving tales and safely weaving their way up the hillsides. Hallstatt is...More

Yes, they do have tours in English, but you need to check their schedule for the times they occur. They run every day so you should not have a problem scheduling one. We loved the tour, got a big bang for our buck!

No. The guide on the bus explicitly told us that there is no time for the salt mine. He said that the tour takes 3 hours, the longest of its kind. In fact, he advise to visit a salt mine somewhere else. There are quite a few... More
