Basilika Absam

In a farmhouse on 17 januar 1797 the statue of Mary appeared in a window. For years, scientists have sought the secret behind to fathom without any result. After much pressure from the population, the statue is placed in the church on the right altar. The Basilica Maria Absam for many believers is a place of solace and hope. The major celebrations are January 17 and June 24, the day of St. John.

Raadhuis Hall

Count Heinrich von Görz Tyrol (1295 - 1335), briefly King of Bohemia, called his castle in the town of Hall his royal house. Later the Habsburg duke Leopold IV donated in 1406 the house to the city. After the 1447 fire the town hall had to be rebuilt completely. For the most part, the town hall have been preserved in this style. Viewing is only available during office hours.

Salzlager - Hall

Until the end of the saltmining (1967), the building served as a salt storage. Now the building is used as exhibition space.
