I Here visitors will find cosy cafes to relax in, restaurants, a bar popular with the young and old, hotels and of course souvenirs.

In the centre of the square stands the mighty Holy Trinity statue, which after 6 years after erection experienced one of the Hallstatt’s greatest disasters: On the 20th September 1750 a blaze spread from the “Keferbäcks” house, which is now the site of Café Derbl, and reduced the majority of the square to ash and rubble: Four people died and 35 houses in the town centre went up in flames.
