Hall in Tirol and the Historic Importance of Salt

Hall in Tirol and the Historic Importance of Salt

Actually, too traditional if you're trying to accomplish anything more than a leisurely lunch from noon till two, when everything closes. The town's name, Hall, means "salt." Hall was so important because it was a center of salt mining and trade. Back when salt was money, Hall was loaded — its seal features a barrel of salt. The town's elegant architecture and rich church make it clear that in its day, Hall was a local powerhouse.
