Saltworks and salt-panning museum in Halle (Saale).

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.
