Hall in Tirol is situated merely 10 km in the east of Innsbruck in face of the imposing Bettelwurf massif. By now in 1231 AD, Hall was named as saline. The salt factory in the Halltal gorge was once the most blooming parts from the 13th century to 1967. Salt was elated through the salt path to Matrei am Brenner.
After a time it was delivered even to foreign countries like Switzerland, the Black Woods and the region around the Rhine river. In 1303 Hall was grown to the rank of town. The name of the hamlet gets from the word “Halle” which has the meaning of “city of salt workers”. The symbol of the city is the example of two golden lions on a red ground with a saline tub in the heart part of the city.
Two attractions of the gorgeous city are its ancient district and the Hall Mint Museum and the Mint Tower. In 1477 the archduke Sigmund which belongs to Tirol had the regional mint transported from Merano which is located in South Tirol to Hall. Probably because of the surrounding area of the silver pit of Schwaz.
In the year 1748, Maria Theresia thaler the owner of the mine was donated about 18 million times and recruited all over the world as a means for the expense. But this duration of time is enlisted in the Hall Mint Museum which is at Hasegg Castle. This castle was restarted in the year of 2003. The Mint Tower is also a wonderful place to visit.
But in the ancient district, you can feel the time of the Middle Ages. Especially, the Obere Stadtplatz square where the town hall is located. The Gothic Saint Nicolas parish church is there to make the city more colorful. The largest preserve area is under the protection of the government. In some distance, the Stiftsplatz square with the Sacred Heart basilica is situated.
Especially, the ancient city of Hall is bigger than the ancient district of Innsbruck. It is more advance but also capable to be seen.
