Winter hiking in Hallstatt

Fairytale Hallstatt

Snow-covered hills and pine trees along the Waldbach stream, in Hallstatt, transform the landscape in the wildly romantic Echerntal into a magical winter wonderland. The fresh, clear winter air is healthy and puts colour into your cheeks.

There is also lots to discover during a winter’s walk around the town centre: Small picturesque alleyways, a wintery market square, the snow-covered cemetery by the Catholic Church, meter long thick icicles on Mühlbach and much more ... Especially recommended is a walk along the " Oberen Weg" the “Dr. Morton-Weg” where visitors from all over the world can get a magnificent panoramic view of Lake Hallstatt. For all romantics we recommend an evening torchlight walk through Hallstatt’s historical old town.
