Ein nicht zu schwieriges Spiel, das einen durch die schönsten Plätze von Hallstatt führt! Absolut zu empfehlen, wenn man nicht nur einen Spaziergang machen möchte, sondern auch in eine mystische und märchenhafte Geschichte mit einer interessanten Wendung eintauchen möchte. Auch die interessanten Fakten zu Hallstatt sind interessant und auf jeden Fall lesenswert!
