Old Town Hall in Tyrol


The medieval town centre of Hall in Tirol is a true architectural splendour. Here you will find winding alleys and pretty little shops with handicrafts and farm shops. Imposing, centuries-old burghers' and craftsmen's houses with their typical oriels and guild shields, many magnificent churches and a castle in the heart that is over 700 years old. Hall's old town is considered the largest and best preserved in the whole of Tyrol, even surpassing Innsbruck 7 km to the west. The historic buildings of Hall's old town bear witness to a prosperous town. Salt production made the town the most important economic centre in North Tyrol. The best way to explore the beautiful old town of Hall is on one of the themed guided tours or a treasure hunt for the whole family. In between, there are numerous cosy cafés, pastry shops, delicious "gelato", Tyrolean specialities, traditional brewery cuisine in rustic vaulted cellars or Mediterranean Italian delicacies.

Hasegg Castle & Mint Museum Hall


Hasegg Castle towers proudly above the beautiful old town of Hall. Hasegg Castle was once built to protect the town of Hall and to monitor the old salt road and shipping on the Inn. In 1567 Archduke Ferdinand II had the Hall mint moved to Hasegg Castle. Today the castle houses the Hall Mint Museum. The history of minting is told here in an exciting way by the mint master Franz via audio guide. The dollar originated in Hall in Tyrol. It originated from the thaler, which was minted in Hall for the first time in 1486. The same goes for the Maria Theresa thaler, which is known worldwide and was used as a means of payment all over the world. After the production of coins ceased, the Hall mint was reopened in 1975 as the "Old Mint" museum. Hall's landmark is the mint tower. The three-flight staircase is unique. 186 steps lead up to the accessible twelve-edged tower, from which there is a breathtaking view of the town of Hall and the Inn Valley. At the end of the tour, everyone can mint a copper coin themselves on an old minting machine.

Salt City Hall & Mining Museum


Good luck! Hall became the most important trading town in North Tyrol in the Middle Ages due to salt production. In 1303 the settlement was elevated to the status of a town. The fact that the floor area of Hall's old town is twice as large as that of Innsbruck's old town shows how great its economic importance was. Thus Hall was more important than Innsbruck for centuries. The importance of salt mining for the town is also reflected in the town's coat of arms: Two lions holding a salt barrel are depicted there. And the name of the town itself - Hall - also points to the connection with salt. The word Hall means salt. Today you can experience the history of salt in a specially built mining tunnel in the centre of Hall's old town. Today it houses the mining museum. The man-made mining tunnel in the old town of Hall in Tyrol allows visitors to immerse themselves in the mining world. Shafts, tools, minerals, a slide and much more give you the feeling of being "underground".
