Welcome in the Youth Hostel Halle!

Our Youth Hostel is located in the city center. The central location and the provision of ensuit bathrooms in every room make this an ideal hostel - especially well suited for schools, families and seminar groups. Additionally, the hostel offers special programs and excursions to make your stay on the Saale memorable.

The city of Halle, known in times past for its salt production and once a Hanseatic trade city, is one of the oldest cities in Central Germany, and the largest city in Saxony-Anhalt. It’s still possible to experience the tradition of the salt workers’ guild in the Halle Saline (Salt) Museum. The town is also internationally known as the birthplace of Georg Frideric Handel. Halle commemorated the 250th anniversary of Handel’s death in 2009.

Geschichte, Spaß und Kultur - ein Urlaub in Halle hat viel zu bieten

Die historische Altstadt Halles stellt eines der größten fast unversehrt gebliebenen Flächendenkmale Deutschlands dar. Die gut erhaltenen mittelalterlichen und frühneuzeitlichen Bauten setzen ganz besondere architektonische Akzente.
Bereits 1315 erwähnt und im Mittelalter ein Zentrum von Handel und Gewerbe, erwarb sich die Stadt Ruhm durch die Gründung der ältesten Universität Deutschlands, der Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg. Darüber hinaus hat die Nationale Akademie der Wissenschaften "Leopoldina" ihren Sitz in dieser Stadt.

In Halle befinden sich eine Vielzahl von kulturellen und musealen Einrichtungen, wie die Stiftung Moritzburg, die Franckeschen Stiftungen, Burg Giebichenstein oder das Landesmuseum für Vorgeschichte, in der u.a. die "Himmelsscheibe von Nebra" ausgestellt ist. Einmalig sind auch das Salinemuseum und das Halloren Schokoladenmuseum.
