We arrived in Salzburg main train station around 8 am and headed to the information desk to figure out how to get to Hallstat. We had booked a beautiful wooden house through Airbnb in Weißenbach, so we had to figure out how to get there too.
The info which we received is as below:
Around 2hr bus ride from Salzburg train station to Bad Ischl. A 15 min train ride from Bad Ischl to Hallstat.
We took all the tickets and went for the bus station which was right next to the train station.
