The weirdness of Salvatorgasse, Hall in Tirol

Salvatorgasse is just one of the many small lanes in Hall in Tirol. But take a look at it! It’s spooky, weird, wonderful and enchanting at the same time. The facades are decaying and leaning left and right, the doors are for midgets, the windows could tell a horror story.
Its name comes from the Salvator church – “church of salvation”, that is closed to public (restauration?). It begins by Nagglburg and ends by a square at the crossing of several streets at the lower part of Hall’s old town.

Could this be the old baker street? There are pretzels on a house facade and on an entrance door at both ends of the lane…
