This natural landscape is also testimony to three and a half thousand years of continuous cultural heritage. Salt is Hallstatt’s “white gold”. It has been extracted here since the middle of the Bronze Age, accounting for the local people’s erstwhile prosperity. Embark on an extraordinary tour of the history of the “Man in Salt” in the Salt Worlds of Hallstatt. Grave relics dating from what archaeologists refer to as the “Hallstatt Age” testify to the wealth of the earliest salt miners. Priceless finds are on display in the Cultural Heritage Museum. Characteristic of this region are also the charming small houses with their typical wooden verandas, the vigour of the local folklore and the ebullient mentality of the people who live here.
