One of the reasons why we spent four nights in Salzburg was to make day trips out of the birth city of Mozart.
Hallstatt is a small town along Lake Hallstatt and the area is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is easy to see why. Who does not enjoy a colourful small town by the waters?
To get there from Salzburg, one may need the patience for journeying. The steps are:
1) Bus 150 from Salzburg Hbf to Bad Ischl Bus Terminal
2) Train from Bad Ischl Bus Terminal to Hallstatt Bahnhof
3) A ferry across the lake
I was not aware Hallstatt is a popular destination so I was surprised to find the island has more tourists than I anticipated.
I imagine myself enjoying exploring the town a little more if the town is less busy.
Write-up coming soon.
