Visitors can explore the secrets of these crystalline mountains on wonderful hikes and in the spacious underground belly of the “giant” at the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens.
The small Tyrolean town of Hall in Tirol lies nestled amongst an array of mountains. Remnants of the town’s heyday can still be found in the medieval Old Town, which is the largest in western Austria: Hall was a centre of salt mining, a trade hub, and is considered to be the birthplace of the Thaler, a silver coin, and therefore also the dollar. There are still some remnants of the long history of salt mining in Halltal Valley, where traces of the mine which was in operation until 1967 can still be seen. Even if you would prefer to find salt for your soup in a mountain lodge, the valley is perfect for extensive hiking and mountain tours encompassing the Speckkarspitze and Lafatscherjoch.Far more mystical than the historic salt crystals are the legendary quartz crystals, which visitors can search for in the enchanting “wild” surroundings of Lizum in Wattental Valley. Attentive hikers accompanied by a local guide might just discover a few crystals here and there.
