Overview

This book especially provides insights into the local everyday culture and customs of Hallstatt, Austria. It documents the unique natural setting and the history of the “old” saltworks and the “new” World Heritage site, while at the same time sensitizing the reader to the problems that arise precisely due to Hallstatt´s popularity.

Author Biography

A native of Hallstatt and a resident of Vienna, photographer Josef M. Fallnhauser knows Hallstatt like the back of his hand. The photo archive he has devoted to his native home and built up over the years is an authentic documentation that goes beyond the idyllic postcard image. It's a vivid collection of history and stories, nature experiences and cooking recipes. The author's characteristic "view from the outside" gives him the distance he needs to be able to take an impartial, critical look at the place where he was born.
