The old summer residence of Georg Franz Sumatinger and current rectory in Hallstatt.


In 1669, Georg Franz Sumatinger, as head of the Hallstatt salt works, bought the land in the Lahn district of Hallstatt. The construction of the house began in the same year and was completed the following year.


After the occupation of the old parish home in the market, the Benefice Lahn now serves as a parish home. Today, services are celebrated in the chapel on the first floor three times a week on various occasions.
