From Salzburg, we hit the road for Hallstatt. First we arrived at St. Wolfgang, a little town and a lake. Weather was pretty bad but it got me this amazing photographs. We left from Sankt Gilgen for the boat tour. On St. Wolfgang lake, we wandered around and had a great time. When we arrived at St. Wolfgang town, we ate and enjoyed the little town.
From there, we left for the famous Hallstatt. It’s a small location with pretty buildings and little shops. It has less than 1000 inhabitants but it has been told that sometimes, there are 7000 tourists daily. Hallstatt is known for its production of salt, so make sure you get that from there. My mom wouldn’t miss it for the world aandd she had way too many. Salt used to be very valuable, so that we read stories like salt : white gold in high school. When Salt was a valuable resource, the region was historically very wealthy. It is possible to tour the world’s first known salt mine named Salzwelten, located above downtown Hallstatt. Of course, our little beautiful town is a World Heritage Site for Cultural Heritage. I wish I had the time to go up in Hallstatt, but I couldn’t. You should try it.
