Thursday Doors – Hallstatt in Austria

Hallstatt Door

On a visit to Salzburg we went on a train journey and visited the village of Hallstatt, which claims to be the most attractive place in all of Austria.

The land between the lake and mountains is sparse and precious and the town itself has exhausted every free patch of it and the first road to Hallstatt was only built in 1890. The bus arrived in the village through tunnels blasted out of the rocks and dropped us off at the southern end of the village. The village was thoroughly charming and I was immediately prepared to accept its most attractive village in Austria claim.

  5. Beautiful shots Andrew. That first looks like it could have been taken in ancient Greece or Rome.

  6. It is so beautiful especially when looked at with Australian eyes. So very different from anything we have here. And I like a nice wood pile as well.

  8. Nicely done Andrew. Your photography of the village reflections on the lake is stunning. What a lovely time of the year, too, with that changing foliage.
