What to visit in Hallstatt
Hallstatt Salt Mine
The Hallstatt Salt Mine is one of the oldest salt mines in the world. Records indicate that it was already active in the 15th century. Until the 1960’s it was one of the most important mines in the entire region, but then it ended its activity. There’s a great lookout at the Hallstatt Salt Mine that allows visitors to have a spectacular view of Lake Hallstatt and its surrounding mountains.
Church of Christ
Hallstatt has always housed a large number of protestant citizens. As the protestants didn’t have a church, they built a prayer house in the 18th century. A few decades later, the prayer house was rebuilt into one of the most iconic buildings in Hallstatt, the Church of Christ.
