Approx. 12:30 End of Excursion

The half-day excursion will start with a guided tour and bring us to the Hallmarkt, the cradle of the city of Halle. It is the place of the brine springs. Until 1868 men used to seeth the brine and extract the salt, called Hall, from the liquid. In the 15th century the salt workers assumed the name Halloren and formed Germany's oldest trade union, the Salt Worker's Association in the Valley of Halle.

Afterwards we will visit the Technical Saltworks Museum which has its seat in a conserved building of the former Prussian royal saltworks from 1720. Here we will attend a so-called show seething, a demonstration of the original salt production method and learn more about the importance of the natural resource salt for the development of the city of Halle.

Dr. Rainer Lüdigk of the Halle (Saale) Institute of Structural Policy and Business Development will give us an overview on the challenges of today’s structural development of the region with special focus on demographic developments.

An admission ticket is required to participate at the excursion. To register for the technical excursion please see here.
