Hallein

The historical city

A vibrant small town rich in history and brimming with life.
This town on the Salzach River boasts a beautiful medieval town centre (Salzach/Inn style) with impressive town houses, spacious squares and charming alleyways - you won’t be surprised to learn that Hallein’s entire historic old town has been classified as a historic monument.

Busy pavement cafés, Italian ice-cream parlours, bistros and inns, as well as trendy boutiques and shops with excellent and friendly customer service – veritable treasure troves of beautiful items beyond the mass-produced – in Hallein you’ll be spoilt for choice! Another unique feature of Hallein is the Pernerinsel Island, which divides the Salzach River into two arms right in the middle of the town and is home to historic saline buildings.
