Guided Tour of Hallstatt Town Center An eerily beautiful walk

Hallstatt is a very special town. With its medieval houses, tightly pressed against each other, roof to roof, wall to wall. On one side, Hallstätter See, sparkling like a jewel in the sunshine, along with the sight of the majestic Dachstein Massif – no wonder that so many poets and thinkers lost their hearts to the scenery in and around Hallstatt.

Before you set out into the town and discover the beauty of Hallstatt itself, you first need to experience the magic that’s a little more hidden away: The Salt Mine, deep inside the Salzberg outside Hallstatt, is a mystical place, with kilometer upon kilometer of tunnels, wooden miners’ slides and a subterranean salt lake. After your adventure underground, the excitement continues above ground. On a professionally guided tour of the town, you and your class will become more familiar with the different faces of this World Heritage town. You will stroll through the historic town center and up to the world-famous Charnel House, which is home to over 1200 skulls – many of which are beautifully painted.
