Hallstatt is one of world heritages that claimed by UNESCO. One day me and my husband visited this old city by car from Germany. This located is linked from Salzburg then less one hour driving without highway to Hallstatt.
Thus Hallstatt is popular known by Salzwetten which means produce the biggest amount of salt in the world. Not only as salt mine, Hallstatt could be famous as panaroma view near lake among the mountains around.
Some world tours offer to look around the city by walking within 30 minutes. You can try going by rent of boat on spot. No entrance ticket to come here.
Hmmm, I can find peaceful mind for awhile after looking this view.
