In the past, everything in Hall in Tirol was centred around money; both the creation of money as well as the production and selling of salt. Even today there are traces of this time to experience and discover. The Burg Hasegg/Mint tower is the perfect centre to immerse yourself in the development of coins. In Hall’s old town, you can stroll through the narrow alleyways and see traces of the city’s history. For nature lovers there is a large variety of activities to choose from, both on the mountain and in the valley. Let yourself be inspired by the weekly programme from the tourist board.
Hall in Tirol and its neighbouring regions are well known for offering a variety of events all year round. There is something for everyone: from weekly farmer’s markets on a Saturday in Oberen Stadtplatz in Hall in Tirol, to festivals, to running events, to cultural highlights such as the Easter festival or “music in the giant” at the Swarovski Crystal World in Wattens.
Hall in Tirol has a lot of stories to tell. Two large developments shape the city’s image even today: salt production as well as the mint tower. Even on the journey over the motorway bridge at Hall Mitte or when walking through the old town, you can immediately see the colourful mix of towers from churches and abbeys as well as charming, well-maintained medieval houses.
Today, Hall’s old town is one of Austria’s best preserved, and is the largest old town in western Austria – larger even than that of Tyrol’s capital, Innsbruck. Locals describe Hall as the secret capital of Tyrol. Embedded in the old town, events, celebrations and markets regularly take place. Well-loved by locals and visitors alike is the Hall Christmas market. Let yourself be won over!
Just a few kilometres away from Hall in Tirol you can experience twinkling moments and discover the underground chambers inside the giant, with an enchanting garden.
In 1995, Andre Heller created this unique place of fantasy for both young and old. 20 years later, the giant with its wonderful garden and art installations such as the crystal clouds, was made more attractive by international artists and modernities such as a Café and the restaurant Daniels.
Today the Crystal Worlds are one of the top two most visited sights in Austria and is worth a visit whatever the weather!
In summer as well as in winter there are enjoyable nature experiences in the tourism region of Hall-Wattens. Alongside the classic activities of hiking, cycling, mountain biking, skiing and snowboarding, the nature park of the Karwendel holds many natural treasures for you. Either on a nature watch tour or a guided snow shoe walk with a trained guide, you can discover the animal and plant world up close.
