For years I always wanted to visit Hallstatt. But I had heard that the village has become so popular with tourists that the crowds are overwhelming. One article I read mentioned up to 110 tour buses per day! Two million visitors a year (concentrated in the summer). Some people come, take a few selfies and leave. That pretty much changed my mind on making a future visit.
That said, I wonder if COVID changed the dynamic. Tourism must have gone down to zero during COVID, like most places.
Has anyone visited Hallstatt in 2022 or this year? I’d be interested to learn when you went and what did you experience in terms of crowds. Also, what did you choose to do with your time there.
