The symbol of the historical part of the city is the ancient Hasegg castle with a dodecagonal Coin tower ... In the distant past, this castle was the corner part of the city walls and the meetings of the rulers of Tyrol were held in it. In the 15th century, a mint was housed here, and today the castle houses the city museum.
The old town houses the town hall with a high gabled roof. It consists of two parts: the royal house and a large building with a balcony, from where the rulers of the city addressed the people. Not far from the town hall is the church of St. Nicholas, the portal of which is decorated with the figures of the grieving Christ, the Virgin Mary and St. Nicholas.
