Hallstatt, is a village in the Salzkammergut, a region in Austria. It is located near the Hallstätter See.
The picturesque village on the lake with the same name owes its existence to the rich salt deposit of salt in the mountain of Hallstatt. 7000 years ago, as the prehistoric humans from Hallstatt began to take the salt from the salt mine who would of guessed, that this little village would give its name to a period in history – the Hallstatt period (800-400 BC).
In 1997 the UNESCO Convention for the Protection of the World's Cultural and Natural Heritages added the region of "Hallstatt - Dachstein/Salzkammergut" to it's "World Heritage List."

The bright red modern boats make a fine contrast to the old village in the background. A pleasant view with impressive Alps, partly hidden in the low clouds. The jetty provides a link between the boats and the church and makes the composition well balanced.
