Without a doubt, Hallstatt in Austria is one of my favourite places we have visited and this is a big call I realise, as I always say we have no favourites as each place is so different to one another, but Hallstatt is at the top of the list. This could also be as it holds a special place in my heart, but that is another story!

Hallstatt is a little town of incredibly breathtaking views situated between Salzburg and Graz, in the Salzkammergut Lake Region of Austria. It’s considered to be one of the oldest still inhabited settlement in all of Europe, Hallstatt is also a UNESCO heritage site. In spring, summer or even covered in snow, you cannot deny how simply incredibly beautiful Hallstatt is and definitely worth a visit if you’re in Austria.
