Built among the mountains, Old Town serves as a huge archaeological site for very old salt mines, some of which are active to this day. Descend underground to see the salt lake and pay a visit to the prehistoric mummy of a miner frozen in salt. The village glows with baroque ornaments on colorful buildings--it sits alongside the lake and is ripe with cafes and restaurants. Put Old Town at the forefront of your travel plans using our Hallstatt trip itinerary planning tool.
