The beauty of Hallstatt is its weather conditions at different points of the day due to the fact that it is nestled within the mountains causing unexpected weather changes each adding to a unique perspective of the village.
It takes not more than half a day to explore the village thoroughly at your own pace. However, there are several other attractions nearby such as the world's oldest salt mines and the Dachstein ice caves.
Hallstatt is extremely beautiful throughout the year during different seasons more specifically during summer when the trees and flowers come into bloom thereby reflecting a wide range of colors over the village and the crystal clear lake only bolsters the beauty of the village. During winter the entire village is under snow which gives a totally different yet unparalleled image. However, the village attracts hordes of tourists and is often overwhelming during the peak seasons, so it is always advisable and recommended to visit Hallstatt during off-seasons such as March - April which is when I decided to go.
