With its location in central Germany and easy to reach from the Leipzig-Halle airport, the university city Halle is a unique travel destination. Only a few kilometres away, the famous Nebra sky disk was found and is now exhibited in Halle’s State Museum of Prehistory. Halle is also known as Handel city: The composer George Frideric Handel was born here and Handel concerts are still a focal point in the city’s cultural life. But what lies at the city’s heart is its salt making tradition. Even the city’s name originates in the Halle salt mining tradition: “The name Halle can be traced back to its Celtic roots, where the word meant ‘place of salt making’,” says Isabel.
