Even though the village of Hallstatt holds a one-day Christmas market, it’s well worth visiting for more than the day. Vast mountains and a deep blue lake set the scene while the picturesque village is lit up with colourful lights and decorations.
In this guide, I list the best place to stay near Hallstatt Christmas Market that will add to your festive experience.
Hotels Near Hallstatt Christmas Market
Given that Hallstatt is a small destination, almost everywhere is near the Christmas market. However, some lakeside hotels can be up to 10 minutes away, which could be an issue if the weather isn’t great.
Instead, I suggest staying near Marktplatz, the Christmas market location. It’s a beautiful square, metres from the lake, with incredible views of nature. Here is my top hotel pick for Hallstatt.
