The Baroque composer George Frideric Handel was born in Halle. His birthplace has been preserved, and visitors can call in at the churches where he was baptized and often played the organ. The site of Handel’s baptism, the Marktkirche Unser Lieben Frauen also witnessed sermons by Martin Luther in 1545 and 1546 that rocked the Catholic church to the core. Places to visit include Handel Haus, Halloren Chocolate Factory, and Roter Turm.
In terms of shopping, fourteen streets in Halle lead to the city’s 16,000-square-metre Marktplatz, hosting many of the monuments on this list like the Marktkirche and Roter Turm. People have been trading at Marktplatz since the 1100s when the first communal warehouse (a forerunner to department stores) was established for Halle’s dressmakers and fabric traders. There’s a daily market from 09:00-18:00, Monday-Saturday, and the stalls for Halle’s Christmas market trade here. There’s an array of restaurants serving local and international cuisine and pubs pulling off the best of their spirits. In terms of climate, Halle has a fair share of sunshine and rainfall.
