I have traveled to over 50 countries on seven continents, more than half of which were visited solo. I love traveling, being outdoors, and hiking. I hope to inspire others to travel and explore further, even if that means going alone.
Hey, I'm Ashley!
Hallstatt is such an adorable destination and the views are seriously postcard-worthy! With its increasing popularity, I highly recommend booking your stay in Hallstatt well in advance . You don’t want to get stuck with sky-high accommodation prices.
A couple days spent wandering around Hallstatt will give plenty of opportunity for breathtaking, picture-perfect shots, with some seriously stunning vistas. Make sure these classic ones are on your list so they don’t slip through your lens!
Check out Marktplatz – a vibrant little square, brimming with brightly colored buildings and lush greenery! If you’re looking for an awesome photo-op without the crowds, get there before 7:30am so that you can capture its beauty in all its glory.
Going off the beaten path can be so rewarding. Climb Müllerstiege, an Austrian street cascading with stairs from Oberer Marketplatz, to a sweet surprise: a serene view that’s sure to make your jaw drop!
You will find yourself approaching one long flight of stairs that leads to a tiny apartment…but keep walking! A second set awaits with a promise of magnificent sights, glimmering in morning sunlight – definitely worth getting out bed for!
If you’re searching for the perfect picture opportunity, then look no further than “Viewpoint Hallstatt” on Google Maps. This spot is so popular that it’s become one of Instagram’s most photographed locations. Arrive early so you don’t miss your chance at an awesome shot, with limited competition from the day tours.
Reach for the skies and head up to Hallstatt’s World Heritage View Skywalk, Hallstatt’s highest viewpoint!
You can either take a funicular or embark on an hour-long hike before you reach your destination. If you plan to take the hike up, make sure you have all the day hiking essentials you’ll need.
If you decide to grab a seat in the cable car, make sure you get there early because it tends to get busy quickly. I made that mistake and got stuck queueing for over an hour!
When you arrive at the top, ascend further by taking a set of stairs or hopping into an elevator to reach the viewpoint with stunning, areal views. There will likely be a line for pictures at the point where the skywalk jets out the furthest.
And lastly… don’t forget, 15 minutes away lies another exciting experience. Slide through one of Europe’s oldest salt mines! Just make sure to get back to the funicular before 4:30pm, otherwise you might find yourself taking that scenic hike down the mountain.
For other European viewpoints not to miss, check out Only Two Days in Lake Bled, Slovenia.
