Go as early as possible or late in the evening. The area is very crowded with tourists although the restaurants and shops seem to accommodate them fairly easily . It’s a lovely place to visit and there are some interesting shops.

The town square is simply charming. The square with its fountain, surrounded by the beautiful flower-festooned buildings, each rising slightly higher as the make their way up the mountainside, while behind you ripples the cold waters of a mountain lake, creates its own magic!

When we visited the town there was a funeral taking place in the church. This provided for a different expereince and a little extra insight into Austrian life that we wern't expecting. It made our expereince at theCentral Square memorable and special.

A pretty small square in old town Hallstatt. Good place to grab a snack, beverage or lunch. Really like all the small homes and shops.

It was fine when I was there from May 20-23, though not sure about current conditions - double check online and possibly call/message your accommodation or tourist office.
