When the carnival hustle and bustle in the villages of the region is over and winter has finally and officially come to an end, the spring awakening in the Hall-Wattens region also starts with Lent.

Enjoy a spring-like holiday in the Hall-Wattens region. Whether at Easter or at Pentecost, spring in the region offers not only culture but also lots of nature.

In many churches in the region, colourful, elaborately designed and guarded Easter tombs can be admired during the Easter season.

Lived traditions and Tyrolean customs also characterise the events in the region in early summer, both on the mountain and in the valley. The highlights in early summer include the traditional Corpus Christi processions in the villages of the region, which are well worth seeing, as well as the mountain and Herzjesu fires on the mountain. The Haller Gassenspiele and the "Haller Burgsommer" Hall Castle Summer attract culture enthusiasts to the door in early summer. Whether as a Whitsun holiday, a time-out over one of the long weekends in May and June or just as a stopover on your way through to Italy, the Hall-Wattens region offers you the perfect place to stay in early summer.
