Hallstatt – the treasure chamber for archaeologists
Even in the international world of archaeology, Hallstatt is regarded as an absolute hotspot. Year after year, researchers from the Natural History Museum in Vienna come here in order to continue their work at dig sites in Hallstatt, bringing various fragments of the past to light one piece at a time.
Due to the extraordinarily rich finds from the grave field, Hallstatt has been world famous since the 18th century. Treasures from across virtually the entire known world of that time were unearthed in the Hallstatt grave field – an absolute archaeological treasure chamber indeed! No wonder, then, that every year researchers from the Natural History Museum (NHM) in Vienna come to Hallstatt for research purposes.
