Hallstatt, Austria

Hallstatt is a village in Upper Austria. Currently, a little over 900 people live there. It is in the
Salzkammergut, a mountain region in Austria. It lies on a lake. Because of its position, Hallstatt
could only be reached by boat (or by using narrow, difficult mountain trails) for a long time.
At the end of the 19th century a road was built. Despite this, even in the Neolithic people might
have lived there. This is because there is a lot of natural salt there. In 1846, Johann Georg
Ramsauer (a salt miner) found a cemetery from the neolithic age just above the village.
A cultural epoch in Europe is named after this. It is called Hallstatt culture. A blacksmith site has
also been excavated. Today, the village lives mainly on tourism.
