    You can look at the Austrian railway site at : http://www.oebb.at, and also the Hallstatt tourism site at: http://www.hallstatt.net. The Halstatt site also lists auto, bus, and postal bus connections. A quick note, the train station sits across the lake from Hallstatt. You pay to take the ferry across the lake. The trip costs 2 Euro, one way. The link for the ferry can be found at: http://www_alt.hallstatt.net/schiffahrt/pr.... Gary

    1) It's Hallstatt, not Halstatt. It's 136 tariff-km on ÖBB from Salzburg.

    The international TCV fare would be 24.40 Euro. That is, if you buy at DB counter. While legally the city of Salzburg in of course in Austria, according to an old 19th century agreement, it belongs to both German and Austrian networks. So now it's both DB (German) and ÖBB (Austrian) station.

    TCV fare is an international fare. It is usually higher than the national.

    2) Per Gary's suggestion: http://www.oebb.at will give a price of 21.60 Euro, indeed as expected lower, than 24.40 Euro from DB.

    3) Even further. If you continue to look at www.oebb.at you will see, there are some connections showing up as bus routes. The prices are much lower: only 4.50 Euro with "1-PLUS-Freizeit-Ticket".

    In our case the such price would be on the "train" (actually: bus number 150) departing Salzburg Mirabellplatz bus station at 09:19, arriving Bad Ischl Bahnhof at 10:50 will connect with the RegionalExpress train number R-3412 departing Bad Ischl 11:20, arriving Hallstatt 11:48

    So the price is... as high as 24.40 Euro (you went to wrong ticket counter and bought an international ticket) or as low as 4.50 Euro (you won't mind to go by bus)
