    Hallstatt, Austria - During our visit, we were invited by the local shooting club to join them as they celebrated the final day of the shooting season which included a parade through the village and a boat ride on a Celtic boat followed by a sharp shooting match.


    While visiting do not pass up the opportunity to take a tour of one of the salt mines.
