Hallstatt in China?Oh Mein Gott! - is nothing sacred?...not content with duplicating anything that can raise a few dollars, the Chinese have only gone and cloned the entire Austrian village of Hallstatt...a kinda HallstattWorld of the Far East...
Only took one year and $940 million, apparently...however, that was the easy bit...finding a Chinese equivalent of that obnoxious weasel that runs the Zur Muehle bar and restaurant will be a much bigger challenge...

1Eine Schande! What's next - copyrighting towns? It will probably break after a few decades anyway. Der Spiegel ran a more interesting story last year:
Looks like the Austrians may have the last laugh if it turns out like Anting.

6Great idea, visiting China I'll also visit Halstatt there. Thnaks for sharing, Jack.
BTW. did the Sovyets not build a copy of London and Paris near Stavropol to reward their dedicated workers with a trip, told by Wladimir Kaminer in his Russian disco
1893: Vierwaldstättersee replica with rocks and swiss house near Emmerich Germany.
And what's in Las Vegas?

7Apparently the Chinese have some previous 'form' in this department...a few years back, they cloned and reconstructed 'The Sound of Music' in it's entirety...sets, actors, countryside, etc...
However a snag arose at the unveiling after the visiting dignitaries were inadvertently left in a room with 'Julie Andrews' for half an hour...overnight the whole thing was dismantled and a veil drawn over the entire affair, never to be mentioned again...

10Mory copy and paste, Nanchang.
I think this triumphal arch is somewhere to be seen in Europe too...
