Bone house
800-year old cemetery at a higher level of the town with a gorgeous view of Hallstatt below. Graves are adorned with colorful flower beds and unusual birdhouse-shaped tombstones. In earlier times, graves were reoccupied after 10 years and the remains of the previous occupant were moved to the Bone House in the nearby St. Michael's Chapel as part of a second funeral. Over 1200 skulls carrying decorativr inscriptions are stored here. #historic #monument #cemetery
