In fact, some of the homes in the area are estimated to be over 500 years old. The friendly atmosphere in Hallstatt further cements its Old World charm. History, however, is not the only reason for visiting here. Its unique sights, including but not limited to the Dachstein ice cave, the Bone House, and the salt mines, are also worth visiting. Here are the top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals in this picture-perfect village.
