Hallstatt photo point

Main View: Simply charming!

Each day, people from all over the world meet in the „Römisches“ district of Hallstatt to capture the magical backdrop of the world famous main view of Hallstatt on their memory cards, mobile phones and tablet PCs. The photo point, which is just a short walk from the market square, is one of the world's most beautiful motives. Millions of people have already been photographed against the stunning backdrop, which for many visitors counts as one of the most beautiful motives in Europe.

Whoever stands here has the houses built on the rocks behind them and Lake Hallstatt at their feet. And inbetween, on a small peninsula, lies the Evangelical church with the boat landing stage and the "Heritage Hotel". To our right we see the Catholic parish church, built on the rock with the ossuary - one of the largest skull collections in the world. Conclusion: Whoever visits Hallstatt should not miss this unique opportunity.

Our tip for selfie photographers in a hurry

Use the time between 22:00 hrs. and 9:00 hrs. During this period you can easily drive to the photo booth. Because then the town center is not cordoned off with a barrier. Then they don't have to go as far and can quickly get to their world-famous picture. Drive through, take a great photo and drive on straight away. This way you can quickly get a great picture.
