Remember the days when passengers were treated like they ought to kneel down and kiss the feet of taxi drivers for agreeing to take their money and bring them to their destinations? They are back.
People who know Hallstatt recognises it by the classic village views, which has to be seen from the edge or from the water. No one really wants to go there to walk the streets (hidden between the streets in between the building you see on postcards), or to eat over there. Most importantly, it gets ridiculously expensive to stay there. Where then, do we stay when visiting Hallstatt?
