In the car-free center of the World Heritage town of Hallstatt in Upper Austria’s Salzkammergut region, the Seehotel Grüner Baum (“Green Tree“) features spacious and comfortable rooms with fantastic views of Lake Hallstatt. First mentioned in 1700, the lovingly renovated hotel showcases a historic atmosphere, which has already served as a backdrop for several movies. Empress Sisi, the Austrian author Adalbert Stifter, Agatha Christie and many other famous people have stayed at this hotel. Nestled between the impressive mountains and picturesque Lake Hallstatt, the village of Hallstatt has a 4,500-year history. The historic market square is the geographic and social center of the village. From one side, the Seehotel Grüner Baum stands as the most impressive building on the square. From the other side of the building, the property opens up towards the lake with an inviting terrace. Every day, the restaurant “Zum Salzbaron” serves freshly-caught fish from the lake. Parking is possible for a charge in the P1 parking area outside the town. From there, a free shuttle bus to the hotel is available.
