Hallstatt Farmers‘ Market
Fresh at the lake
In these days of the big supermarket chains and discounters, the small shopping opportunities stand out in even more. Fresh products without artificial additives. Fresh from the many small, down-to-earth producers from the Salzkammergut. Now Hallstatt also invites you to a small but fine weekly market with culinary delights from the region. Every Tuesday morning from 7:00 until 12:00 the marketeers invite to the Hallstatt “Badeinsel” (bathing island) for a tasty market morning.
Weekly market with playground
And while Mum and Dad or Grandpa and Grandma fill their shopping basket with great delicacies from the heart of Austria, the children can let off steam on the adjacent playground. Everyone gets their money's worth. For good does not necessarily have to come from the other end of the world. We look forward to seeing you: Tuesdays from 7:00 hrs. at the 1st Hallstatt Farmers’ market!
Hallstatt - Small village with a great history
The picturesque village on the lake with the same name owes its existence to the rich salt deposit of salt in the mountain of Hallstatt. 7000 years ago, as the prehistoric humans from Hallstatt began to take the salt from the salt mine who would of guessed, that this little village would give its name to a period in history – the Hallstatt period (800-400 BC). Rich findings in Hallstatt and the upper valley of Hallstatt gave this village international recognition; even today discoveries are still made in the salt mountain of Hallstatt. Among the most beautiful places of interest are the oldest salt mine in the world and the ossuary in Hallstatt, a romantic boat ride on Lake Hallstatt, a trip to the breathtaking cave world in Obertraun and a visit to the Lake Gosau with the mighty Dachstein glacier. Additionally, Bad Goisern is popular in the summer with hikers and bikers. In winter guests are lured in by the ski areas of Dachstein West in Gosau and the Ski and Freeride Arena in neighboring Obertraun with perfect slope conditions. We wish you an unforgettable holiday in Hallstatt!
