Halle is not just the cultural capital of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt, but also the birthplace of George Frederic Handel. Until today you can feel the spirit of the famous baroque musician in the city, especially during the Handel Festival in June. Don’t miss a visit to the Handel House and the Market Church where Handel was christened. Experience the vividness of the more than 1,200-year-old city centre of Halle with its narrow streets and historic buildings. Let yourself be surprised.
By the way: Halle is also popular for its history of salt and sweets. Salt, or the “white gold” is what made the city great and famous. Until today the “Halloren”, the salt-panners of Halle, see the salt using traditional methods.
