One of Europe's oldest towns, Hallstatt's history dates back 4500 years. Many relics of the early Iron sage, including a preserved 3000 year old salt miner, were unearthed in the nearby salt mine (salzbergwerk).
Other attractions in this small town in the Salzkammergut region include several museums and the 15th century Pfarrkirche and its adjoining Beinhaus containing rows of neatly arranged human bones.
