A tour exploring the fascinating area and town of Hallstatt! Let us show you around Hallstatt and take you back to the time when the Celts inhabited this area! Hallstatt is located in the Salzkammergut, the lake region of Austria that is on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites around the world that are renowned for their natural and cultural heritage at the same time. Best known for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times, Hallstatt gave its name to the Hallstatt culture, the archeological culture linked to Proto-Celtic and early Celtic people of the early Iron Age in Europe around 800-450 B.C. Today, Hallstatt is renowned as one of the most beautiful place in the local region, and it has become one of the most significant and interesting locations in the Salzkammergut, a picturesque and quaint village just waiting to be explored. Explore nearby the Krippenstein with the ice caves to see the fascination of ever-lasting ice, let us take you back in time in the mammoth cave where the skeleton of a real mammoth had been found, or take the cable car up to the top to see the 5-fingers’ visitor platform and look over the mountains, valley and see the lake district area, or to the Dachstein – Austria’s second tallest mountain.
