In Prominent Footsteps Through the Night
At the beginning of the 19th century, the path of the world traveller Alexander von Humboldt already led to Hallstatt. And even then, the explorer and discoverer described the idyllic settlement as the "most beautiful lakeside resort in the world". But the globetrotter was not the only celebrity to pay Hallstatt a visit. The British best-selling author Agatha Christie - creator of Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, as well as the world star Marlene Dietrich have also strolled through the narrow streets and alleys of Hallstatt. The Austrian Empress Elisabeth, better known as Sisi, was also drawn to the historic pilgrimage site.
The history of the world-famous lake town in the heart of Europe is much older and goes back several thousand years. Learn more about female "pack donkeys", an exciting art heist or a unique corpse discovery and its subsequent disappearance.
Wait Until it's Dark!
Come with us on an unusual World Heritage tour through Hallstatt and listen to stories that you won't find on any internet portal. Because in the evening, when night slowly falls, the historic town centre shows itself from a completely new perspective on this tour by torchlight. Come along and enjoy Hallstatt by night.
