The city of Halle (Saale) owes its origins to its wealth of saline springs. In 1491 the city's saltworkers, known as the Hallors, joined together to form a brotherhood. Its members preserve the history and traditions of their forefathers to this day. In the saltworks and salt-panning museum (Salinemuseum), the Hallors still produce salt the old-fashioned way. Visitors have the chance to watch them at work on a number of select dates in the year.
