The ferry came in less than 5 min, the view of Hallstatt on the ferry ride was absolutely stunning!
As we were setting up our tripods to take a photo of us two, a swam approached...it came closer and closer and it turned out it was very big. It almost made me scared LOL!
We walked to the "town center" which was very close to the ferry station, the buildings were very cute and colorful:
We saw a stairway so we walked up and followed the path to a church. The view there was one of the best to see Hallstatt lake and the mountains surrounded it.
We continued our way up and reached a parking lot at the top, this is where people who drive reach Hallstatt.
After spending some time taking pictures up here, we walked back down to the village center and looked for a place for lunch. The village center has few different restaurants to choose from. We chose a close-by restaurant and ate there, the food quality was very good! This was the white asparagus season so I had the white asparagus cream soup, very tasty!
After lunch, we continued our way exploring Hallstatt. There was only one main road across the village so very easy to navigate.
The cafes along the main road have the nicest view!
Relax and enjoy the view...that's what I called vacation!
The air was so much fresher here!!!
The houses were quite special in Hallstatt..very catchy to our eyes:
Those swans must be the luckiest swans ever...living in such a beautiful place!
As we walked down this main road, every corner, we looked back to see the view and each time was a surprised!
The view of another side of Hallstatt....incredible!
We passed by an electric boat rental place and my husband was very interested but we thought it might be very expensive so we just continued to walk. But....as we walked back, we saw a sign that it was only 15 euros an hour! We rented the boat so glad we did because it was a completely different view of Hallstatt!
Here is a mansion on the opposite side of Hallstatt, whoever lives here is too lucky!
I saw this little boy who wants to see the world so quickly I snapped a pic:
One last look of this beautiful village from the ferry station:
