Introducing Hallein

Too few people visit Hallein in their dash north to Bavaria or south to Salzburg, but those who do are pleasantly surprised. Beyond its industrial outskirts lies a pristine late-medieval town, where narrow lanes are punctuated by courtyards, art galleries and boho cafes. Hotels are cheaper and less sought-after here than in Salzburg, a 25-minute train ride away – a point worth considering during the Salzburg Festival.
