manThe town of Hallein, located just 10 minutes from Kuchl, boasts a historical district with the imposing homes of former prosperous merchant families, inviting plazas and narrow lanes. Stroll through the vibrant Old Town, relax at a street-side cafe, bistro, or one of the ice-cream parlors. Go on a shopping expedition or visit the famous "Silent Night Museum". Culture, too, plays a prominent role in Hallein - especially the Pernerinsel which, during the summer months, has served as a venue for over 20 years for performances that are part of the Salzburg Festival. The Celtic Museum, too, draws visitors from around the world - gaze in astonishment at the beaked jug, one of the most valuable finds in the Eastern Alps dating back to Celtic times. hallein.com
