On our 1 ½ hour journey through the picturesque alleys you will learn what role the faith has played in Hallstatt at all times and how the Catholic and Protestant communities got by in a confined space. But that was not always so…! The highlight of the tour is a visit to the Ossuary, where thousands of bones and hundreds of skulls are laid out. Those who are scared of skulls should not shy away from visiting the ossuary, because with their skilfully painted skulls, the Hallstatt ossuary is a curiosity without equal and amazes the beholder.
