The dreamy streets, the romantic spots and the lovely renovated houses make the whole town, being listed as a historic monument, a gem of medieval architecture.
A walk through the old part of Hallein leads you back to the time when salt was still called “white gold”. For many centuries, the development of townscape, the inhabitants as well as trade and handicraft profited from the salt.
Today Hallein presents itself as the Tennengau’s economic centre, a town with many facets and faces: Celtic town, cultural town, shopping town, school town, industrial town, health resort Bad Dürrnberg and many more.
