As I mentioned in my post about the luxury resort Hallstatt Hideaway in Hallstatt, Austria, it was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited. So, I wanted to create a post with some of my favorite photographs from our time in Hallstatt in the hopes that it will inspire you to visit. This breathtaking, safe, and incredibly fun UNESCO World Heritage Site is worth a trip to Europe just to go here.
Our time in Hallstatt was absolutely breathtaking. If you know me, you know I’d choose the mountains over a beach any day, and Hallstatt captured my heart from the moment I stepped off the boat onto its gorgeous, storied shores. During our time in this picturesque mountainside village in Austria, we stayed at Hallstatt Hideaway in their beautiful Alpine Deluxe Suite HOLZ. With a private sauna, private garden by the lake, full kitchen, and stunning view of the lake and mountains from our suite, there wasn’t a single thing we would change about our time here. I hope we return to this breathtaking village soon, and when we do, we intend to stay here again.
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore contains 72,000 acres of massive, sweeping sand dunes, some as high as 40 a story building, winding sand hiking paths, rivers, streams, gorgeous beaches on Lake Michigan, and unbelievable views. Voted the “Most Beautiful Place in the United States”, this Northern Michigan gem is an iconic nature preserve that reminds visitors how powerful and impressive the transformative powers of nature truly are. We had an exceptional time hiking, swimming, and exploring this beautiful nature preserve, and I’m sharing with you my tips for having a fun and safe time at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
