Hallstatt to Hallstatt station by ferry...

Hallstatt town is on the west side of the lake (the Hallstatter See), Hallstatt railway station (Hallstatt Bahnhof) is on the east side.  A small local ferry called the Stefanie links Hallstatt Markt (Hallstatt town marketplace) with Hallstatt Bahnhof (Hallstatt station) roughly 20 minutes before most train departures, see www.hallstattschifffahrt.at for a timetable.  You pay for the ferry separately at the quayside before boarding, about €3 per crossing, children under 4 free, children under 14 get a reduced rate when accompanied by their parents.
