Guided tours

On a guided town or themed tour held by the Hall-Wattens Tourist Board you will find out about the rich history of Hall in Tirol and will be shown the most important sights. The existence and development of the town is closely connected with salt mining in the Hall valley. As a result of these activities, the town charter was granted in 1303. But the medieval town’s history has also been shaped by disasters and fires.

The region boasts further highlights such as Friedberg Castle, the Typewriter Museum and the Museum of Local and Industrial History in Wattens which are all well worth a visit.
