Hallstatt is a small town in the district of Gmunden, in the Austrian state of Upper Austria.

Situated between the southwestern shore of Hallstätter See and the steep slopes of the Dachstein massif, the town lies in the Salzkammergut region, on the national road linking Salzburg and Graz.

Hallstatt is at the core of the Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut Cultural Landscape declared as one of the World Heritage Sites in Austria by UNESCO in 1997. It is an area of overtourism.

Halstatt’s tourism began in the 19th century but greatly increased after it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. It became popular among East Asian tourists in 2006 when it was featured on a South Korean television show.

Social media images of Hallstatt, captioned “the most Instagrammable town in the world,” went viral in Southeast Asia. His replica was planned and then built in China in 2011 in Huizhou, Guangdong province, Hallstatt’s twin town.
