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.
