Full description

Embark on a half-day scenic tour through the Salzkammergut to Hallstatt. See the town of Hallstatt on a guided tour and explore at your own pace after. Admire the Mullbach waterfall and the Bone House.

Start the trip from Salzburg with a drive through the famous Salzkammergut en route to Hallstatt, known as the Pearl of the Salzkammergut. The route will take you through a number of charming villages, as you listen to an introduction to Hallstatt and the Salzkammergut. If you wish to do the Hallstatt Skywalk, the guide will collect the money for the ticket on the bus.  On arrival in Hallstatt, you might begin your visit with a mountain train ride up to the entrance of the world’s oldest salt mines (though the tour does not visit the mine itself), where you can admire the views down onto Hallstatt.  In Hallstatt you will have 2.5 hours to take in the sights. Enjoy a leisurely walk along the lake and marvel at how the houses above you seem to cling onto the mountainside. Pass by the Mullbach waterfall and visit the local museum. A must-see attraction is the Bone House behind the Catholic church, which will give you an interesting view into local family life (admission not included). You’ll then begin the return journey via Abtenau and Russbach to Gosau, where you’ll see the Gosau Lake and admire the views of the Dachtsein mountains.

Nice trip, Nice tour guide. Only one thing that I would like to remind everyone, if the Hallstatt Skywalk is queuing, you may consider not to go, because you would not have enough time for visiting the lovely Hallstatt village (which the skywalk time is also included in the 2.5hr). And also, you can buy the Salt in the supermarket actually, no need to buy it there...

Hallstatt is so difficult to reach independently we booked the half day tour. The viewing platform is good for photos but at the reduced price of 18 euros each, perhaps good for the photographer of the family to go? Lots of stalls, not so many eating places, probably was at it's best 20 years ago. Become overrated and touristy

It was the easiest way to get from Salzburg to Hallstatt for us. Perhaps the trip might have been a little longer. It would have been great if we had been able to visit the salt mines as well, if we could spend more time in the village itself. Anyway, I recommend the trip to the other travellers. The place itself as well as the surrounding countryside are incredibly beautiful.
