    • train from Hallstatt to Innsbruck

      by ceagallant Online Now Mar 12, 2014 at 6:05 PM

      In September 2014 as part of our European trip we are planning to travel from Hallstatt to Innsbruck. I've tried to get train information about this train trip and the response I get is "we cannot give you information at this time". Does that mean that there isn't one train to take us there and we have to take a couple trains/bus or they just don't have the train schedule as yet?

      How long in Hallstatt?

      by Muir2000 Online Now Oct 22, 2013 at 9:38 PM

      I am wanting to avoid a longhaul trip next year and just hop over into Europe sometime in June. Hallstatt looks suitably gorgeous for a relaxing break. Having said that, I'm not the sort to be able to lay down for a week just reading, I like to get out and about and seek adventure! Would the consensus be that 7 nights is too long a stay for such a small village? I understand there's a museum and I assume I can roam freely through the hills which would happily fill my time. But would I be roaming the same hill every day? Is there more than one cafe or restaurant to eat at or will I be feeling a little groundhog? I can't really imagine ever getting bored of that mountain view. Should I plan a shorter jaunt? Any help greatly appreciated!

      Purchasing train tickets?

      by carloarg02 Online Now May 23, 2013 at 1:42 PM

      I am arriving to Hallstatt via bus, so I'm assuming they're dropping me off downtown. I am planning on staying in the city for a couple of hours and then taking a train to Vienna. Few q's

      - Any place in the city to leave luggage?
      - Any place where I could buy train tickets, or should I just take the boat accross and buy the tickets on the other side?
      - Is the train station in Hallstatt manned? Can I buy tickets there on the spot (on a Saturday afternoon) or do I need to buy them in advance on the internet?

      thanks!

      Bad weather?

      by brekk2 Online Now May 18, 2013 at 4:16 AM

      Hi, we are going to Hallstatt in a months time, but when I checked the weather forecast it showed that it probably will be raining in this part of Europe. I know weather forecasts are not reliable in this sense - 30 days ahead, let alone the climate change, etc. - but I'm already thinking of backup plans - just in case :) I was wondering whether it would still be possible to go up to the salt mine and/ or ice cave if it was raining. Do they operate the funicular in such weather coniditons? I understand that on rainy days there is no point in going up to the 5 fingers and the viewing point, but I hope that the caves still can be viewed by visitors. Could anyone confirm this, please? Or do you think it would be better if I asked the tourist center in Hallstatt via e-mail about these things? Thanks a lot for your replies in advance!

      4-5 hours in Hallstatt... doable?

      by carloarg02 Online Now Apr 15, 2013 at 8:54 PM

      I have a shuttle that is taking me from Český Krumlov to Hallstatt, arriving in Hallstatt around noon.

      Then there's a train to Vienna leaving Hallstatt at 4:30pm.

      This would give me about 4 1/2 hours in Hallstatt.

      Is this crazy or is this an ok time to spend in the city for some basic walking around and looking at beautiful scenery? What would you do with that time frame?

      Also when looking for trains Hallstatt -> Vienna I see a ton of different options for Hallstatt on the OBB site. Which train station should I be picking?

      thanks!

      Hi,

      Can someone please advise on the following :

      I am coming from Budepest to Salzburg-Hallstatt-Vienna. I intend to spend a nite in Hallstatt before proceeding to Vienna. I was told to spend my trips in Salzburg first then proceed Hallstatt and take a train from Hallstatt to Vienna. The trip is about 4 1/2 hrs from Hallstatt to Vienna Meidling station. I'm not sure if this is the correct train timetable shown in wienerlinet website as the trip seems longer if I choose to take a train from Salzburg to Vienna which is about 3 hrs only?

      Hallstatt by day or overnight?

      by SandiM Online Now Sep 26, 2009 at 10:54 PM

      I'm just starting to put together an itinerary for a spring photography/train trip through Austria. Hallstatt popped up on my radar when I saw a beautiful photograph of a quaint little town on a lake in the mountains (I'm sure you've seen the one I mean in National Geographic Traveler). Limited on time, is Hallstatt visitable in one afternoon, or to truly enjoy the place should I plan to arrive in one morning, and leave the next? Are there any other photo-worthy spots in this town, or nearby which can be accessed by train or easily by foot? I'm planning to go in early May 2010, so will there be greenery at this time or still barren due to cold? Thank you!

      Hello,

      I am going to cruise the Danube this summer and wish to visit Hallstatt instead of one of the designated tour stops. It is my understanding that Linz is the closest point to finding a train that will arrive at a ferry which will take me onto Hallstatt. Has anyone done this before? If the choice could be made between Linz and Hallstatt; which would you choose? Can anyone tell me if Linz is closer to Hallstatt than Melk or Salzburg? Approximately how long it would take to get from Linz to Hallstatt and back to catch the cruise boat?

      Thank you
