This parish is the quintessential landmark, when i think about Hallstatt. It's presence is what you notice first, when your on the boat to Hallstatt. It's the same on the return boat ride. Such a pretty sight.

Up the hill, you can find this beautiful catholic church of hallstatt. It is not very hard to reach it. With beautiful yard and great landscape. Also don't forget visiting "Hallstatt Ossuary" or bones chamber.
