Hallstatt on a rainy day

I visited Vienna, the capital of Austria,  2 years ago but honestly speaking, the city did not really impress me because everything’s quite similar to Germany. However, my recent trip to Austria was a difference. This time, I travelled to Hallstatt, one of the oldest and most beautiful villages in the world.

I began the journey in Munich, Germany. It took me around 5 hours and several changes of bus, train and ferry to get to the village.

On the bus from Salzburg to Bad Ischl. Wolfgang Lake was incredible with naturally green and clear water

It is said that the beauty of Hallstatt is all around a year regardless of season, weather or time. However, I personally prefer visiting Hallstatt in autumn or winter because the village seems to be more idyllic during that time. Unfortunately, I don’t have much time left in Europe so I have to travel in summer. Despite that, a rain came, which brought a peaceful and romantic sense to the village.

Hallstatt looked quiet and a bit sad in the rain


Hallstatt is a small village that is suitable for walking and can be visited within one day. To fully enjoy every corner of the village, some people decide to stay one night on the island.

Lovely souvenirs. Want to bring them home

Wandering around

All houses are decorated with flowers. I’m always in love with these floral balconies.

Wooden houses and floral windows. Perfect match!
Who doesn’t want to live in this house?

Wish to own a vintage wooden house like one of these

How I travelled from Munich to Hallstatt

There are 3 ways to get to Hallstatt, by bus, by train, or both. This is how I travelled:

  • Bayern ticket to Salzburg: 25eur/1 person, plus 6eur for 2 people. This ticket is valid from 9AM to 3AM on the following day and allows passengers to go to Salzburg. Trains leave in every hour and take about 2 hours.
  • Bus 150 from Salzburg to Bad Ischl. 10.7eur/1 one-way ticket/1 person. 90-minute-journey.
  • Train from Bad Ischl to Hallstatt Station. 3.7eur/1 one-way ticket/1 person. The ticket allows you to travel by any trains of the route (Bad Ischl -> Hallstatt) on the day. 20-30 minutes.
  • Ferry from Hallstatt to the village. 5eur/1 return ticket/1 person.
