Built to protect the city from salt mining and trade on the River Inn and also to protect the ancient salt route, Burg Hasegg dates back to shortly after Hall received its charter. Under Duke Siegmund and Emperor Maximilian I Burg Hasegg was expanded into a representative castle. Today it houses an interesting numismatic museum, as well as making its historic rooms available for weddings and special events.

Burg Hassegg History

First mentioned in documents in the 13th century, the castle was built to protect the salt mines, the river trade, the bridge over the River Inn and also to protect the ancient salt road.

The name derives from its position at the corner of the country houses, where the brine had evaporated. "Egg" comes from "Eck", the German word for corner. During the 15th century the castle was enlarged to become the residence of princes. In 1567, Archduke Ferdinand II moved the royal mint here, the seat of minting of the silver thaler, the European currency in circulation until the 19th century and today the interesting Museum of the Mint is located inside it, where visitors are guided through half a century of history of the European currency with modern audio technology.

The famous Georgskapelle chapel and the official state rooms are not open to the public, but can be hired for weddings and special occasions.
