Hallstatt — 2 nights

Pearl of Austria

Historically known for the production of salt, Halstatt's fine architecture reflects the small village's salt mining legacy.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hallstatt Lutheran Church and Badestrand Hallstatt. When in Hallstatt, make a side trip to see The Pilgrim's Way in St. Wolfgang, approximately St. Wolfgang away. There's much more to do: admire the sheer force of Waldbachstrub Waterfall, admire the landmark architecture of Siriuskogl, explore the striking landscape at Dachstein Giant Ice Caves, and get great views at Katrin Cable Car.

For ratings, maps, photos, and more tourist information, read Hallstatt journey planner.

Upper Austria travel guide

Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Bodies of Water
Celebrate regional traditions and culture in Upper Austria, studded with castles, bike trails, and renowned museums. The region is quieter than many tourist centers in the country, and locals prefer it that way. This hidden gem may not have as many big-name attractions as other Austrian regions, but medieval villages, charming landscapes, modern galleries, and old-world cafes make visitors happy that they've wandered off the beaten path. For an Austrian adventure, stop by state's capital and artistic center, Linz, and enjoy other sights along the Danube River.
