The university town of Hall
You will get to see one of Tirol's most scenic towns if you take a discovery tour through the medial town of Hall. The old town, which ranks among Austria's best preserved old towns and which is even larger than the one of the provincial capital of Innsbruck, represents a perfect blend of medieval elements and modern architectural concepts, such as the Salzlager event centre, the new Tyrolean Private University UMIT and Parkhotel.
The attractive buildings of the old town of Hall are evidence of the past of the wealthy town: In the Middle Ages, Hall turned into one of the most significant business locations of North Tirol thanks to the salt production. The town already used to be an important place for trading at the river Inn in the Middle Ages. The sovereign mint, which was located in Hall from the middle of the 15th century, considerably contributed to the ongoing economic prosperity.
Today, Hall is a vibrant small town full of vitality where you can experience varied shopping facilities and classy hospitality amidst buildings rich in history. The lovingly restored old town of Hall and the area around the Burg Hasegg castle with its mint tower and the adjacent mint museum captivate visitors from all over the world throughout the year.
