Historical Hallstatt

The market square dates back to the 14th century. In the middle of the market square is the Trinity Column, which was donated by a couple from Hallstatt who made salt, in the middle of the 18th century. Plague columns, also called trinity columns, are monuments that commemorate the time of the plague, or were given as a thank you for the fact that the plague was over.
