Hall in Tirol gained wealth and notoriety through the salt trade, shipping on the Inn river, and “making coin” (minting currency).
Dating to the 15th century, Burg Hasegg is a castle which also became the host site for minting beginning in 1566 with the installation of the Mint. Visible from the Hasegg tower are: Grosser Bettelwurf, Hohe Fürleg (both in the Gleirsch-Halltal Chain), and Hochnissl (Hinterautal-Vomper Chain). The St. Nicholas parish church was first established c. 1281 AD/CE with subsequent expansion and reconstruction over the centuries. The Jesuit church represented the only late-Renaissance church in Tirol and, later, the first Baroque church in north Tirol.
Located 8 km east from Innsbruck, Hall in Tirol is an easy 10-minutes with a regional train (ÖBB) or a cheaper 25-minutes with the city bus (VVT/IVB).
