Lake Hallstatt, Austria: A UNESCO World Heritage Site

lakehalstatt_n

Lake Hallstatt is one of the most serene places I have ever been. The tiny town is surrounded by serene, lush mountains and a crystal blue lake. From the moment you arrive, you realize that this really is a special place with it’s old world charm and country flare. Driving to Lake Hallstatt is nothing short of amazing, you first drive through a long tunnel and along the lakeside before arriving in the small town. Parking is fairly easy and they have tons of space, even though you do have to pay. I suggest riding the funicular up into the mountains for an unforgettable view of the town and the lake.

You can rent traditional Austrian clothing and wear them around town to take pictures and send them to your loved ones. Spend your time wandering around the town, taking in the sights, shopping, and eating some local Austrian food. There’s no better way to spend the day than walking up and down cobble stoned streets eating ice cream and feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin.

    Wow! So beautiful that I can’t imagine it’s real, could you be so kind to tell me something about the photos?

      It is a beautiful place! I took all the pictures myself with a Canon Rebel T2i with a zoom lens. Some of the pictures were taken at the top of the funicular looking down on the town (like the first picture). If you ever get a chance, I highly recommend visiting. Thank you for stopping by my blog!

    Beautiful shots. They remind me of Germany. We lived there for three years, many ages ago.
