This UNESCO-protected location has approximately 780 residents, but according to The Guardian, Hallstatt deals with as many as 10,000 tourists a day. To put that in perspective, The Sun claims this is six times the number of tourists per capita seen in Venice, Italy.

Beyond the Frozen connection, Hallstatt is also considered a highly Instagrammable city, bringing in influencers of all levels. There are also lots of Asian tourists after a Chinese replica of the village was built in the Guangdong province in 2011.

While this can overwhelm local resources, the village is now heavily reliant on the tourist dollars.

That said, you may be surprised to find out that another inspiration in the film is actually found in Canada and not Norway or Austria.
