Our Half day tour in Hallstatt

Starting our day off was very stressful. We were in the most disadvantageous state to our visit to Hallstatt.

We arrived and parked about a few kilometers away from the center. Hubby and I had to walk for around 15-20 minutes from the parking area to the entrance of the town.

Although it wasn’t that tiring, I still find it very striking! The village was indeed very enticing. It was like a fairy-tale ambiance coming out from the Disney movies.

Entering the town’s featured Alpine houses, suddenly it reminded me of our Germany’s visit from previous months ago.

Continuing to its profound path, I finally look into the most stunning sight of the village. My heart pumped like a galloping horse quitting the stable. I was so excited to take photos of this marvelous place.

Inviting you to watch our vlog from Hallstatt, Austria, to know more of the details of our adventure.

Spilling some parts: as you know, we rented a boat for an hour at Bootsverleih near the Evangelische Pfarrkirche Church.

Rented a Boat

We were opting to take a ferry ride to explore the river. However, we found the rent boat place first.

Hence, we rented it, and I was the one who navigated for the first time.

An hour later, we ended our boat tour and continued to stroll in the center. But the rain came and interrupted our way.

We’ve finally decided to finish our day with a meal in a nearby restaurant.

the Heritage Cafe & Bar Hallstatt

At the Heritage Cafe & Bar Hallstatt, we enjoyed our food why starring at every raindrop fall until it stopped and we headed to our next destination.

Here’s another video published from our Lake Tour. For those who love to listen to calm music while overlooking Hallstatt lake, you may watch this video.

Thank you again to all who supported my blog, even though it’s been a long time since I last published something.

To our supportive people from Youtube and Instagram, a very heartwarming thanks for everything.

See you on my next travel!
