Create an itinerary including Central Square Marktplatz
Once a bustling medieval center of trade and commerce, Central Square Marktplatz today is an iconic example of Austrian architecture and a nexus of the town of Hallstatt. Visit the square, nestled within the city named to the World Heritage List, and wander among a host of old buildings marked by balconies and steep roofs. You'll find that a great deal of activity takes place on the plaza--you can watch the bustle from one of the many surrounding cafes. Try some traditional Austrian fare at one of the restaurants nearby, or browse the stores for crafts and Austrian souvenirs. Be sure to grab your camera to get a shot of the statue of the Holy Trinity in the center of the square against the backdrop of 18th-century buildings and a steep, forested mountain slope.

  • Nothing special about this town square, but it is very quaint. Not much here except for a few cafes.

  • As an Austrian, I took the chance during the Corona period and visited Hallstatt. A nice village, but there are similar nice cities in Austria. Parking costs € 9 for 4 hours
