Hallstatt, Austria


Austria is a divine country you must include in your bucketlist.  There are many places to go and visit. Your first stop has to be Vienna, Austria´s capital city, a place where famous musicians and artists were born and formed, like Mozart and Beethoven.  I recommend you to visit the Hofburg Imperial Palace, the place where the Austrian President resides, Schönbrunn Palace, a baroque treasure, you must go and very touristic,  inside you will be amazed by its opulence.  The gardens are a must.

If you are a chocolate lover (not me) you have to go to the “Sacher Hotel” and eat an Austrian traditional Sacher cake (Sachertorte) it is a complete delicacy. I also recommend staying in that hotel, it is famous and iconic.

Don’t  miss going to a classical music concert in Vienna, and enjoy music from Schubert, Mozart etc.

But one of the reasons I visited Austria is “Hallstatt”, one of the most beautiful little towns of Europe, part of Unesco´s World Heritage,  looks like a postcard with spectacular landscapes , on the shore of a lake,  very small but extremely enchanting, there is an ancient salt mine there, a cablecar will take you to the top and you can find a restaurant with great views of Hallstatt´s lake.  A very calm town, when visiting try to keep quiet, local people love living a tranquil life. Have dinner early, everything closes around 9.00p.m.

I recommend you to stay in the Seehotel Grüner Baum hotel,  it has the best location, and lovely views of the lake.  To go to Hallstatt from Vienna, take a train  www.raileurope.com (three hours to get there) and then a boat will take you to the town in around 30 minutes (bring cash for the boat).
