History

Going back in time

The magic of the Middle Ages is still clearly evident in Hall's many towers and gables, its picturesque nooks, alleys and squares.

Although already elevated to town status in 1303, it was wealth derived from salt, coin-minting and trade on the River Inn that gave Hall its important place in the history books.

However, it is not just Hall, but also the surrounding settlements with their churches and monasteries, e.g. Absam's basilica or Volders' Karlskirche, and the other naturally evolving villages, which have witnessed an eventful past.
