China Copies Entire Austrian Town of Hallstatt

July 31, 2015

We’ve posted on China’s replica cities—cities whose architecture mimics those of European towns. Recently, China’s Minmetals Land Limited, a real estate development company, created a replica of Hallstatt, an Austrian town. The town is an exact clone and in China is a high-end development, in Huizhou, a city 60 miles northeast of Hong Kong. The project cost $940 million to build and opened to residents in 2012.
