Tour description

Are you thinking about visiting the city of Halle (Saale) ? My city is known in Germany and beyond for many reasons: it is the home of Georg Friedrich Handel, is home to one of the most famous universities in Germany and, in general, has a lot to offer in terms of history and culture .

Many tours through Halle are largely limited to the historical aspects. This is not the case for me, because during our guided visit you will not only learn all sorts of interesting facts about the history of the city, but you will also get an insight into the everyday life of the people of Halle. You will also find out what is currently happening in the city in political, cultural and economic terms.

Our tour starts at the Handel monument on the market square and takes us from there to the following places
: Universitätsplatz, Moritzburg, Hallmarkt, Eselsbrunnen, Franckesche Stiftungen and Domplatz.

Have I piqued your interest? Then book a tour with me today!

Wonderful guide. Our walk through Halle was kept interesting throughout the whole time and we had an absolute blast despite the somewhat unlucky weather that day. We cannot recommend this guide more 😊

Marco is one of the best tour guides I ever enjoyed! He even gave me a tour in perfect Spanish, although he also speaks English. He's very knowledgeable and can make the information fun with stories and legends. I highly recommend him!

Tour realizado en español, de los tours más interesantes del viaje a Alemania! Marco conoce muy bien la historia de Halle, una ciudad que nos ha sorprendido. Además habla un perfecto español y es una persona encantadora. Tour imprescindible si viajas a la zona de Leipzig!

Marco hat eine sehr lebendige Führung durch Halle gemacht, die immer unterhaltsam und spannend war. Wir hatten viel Zeit für unsere Fragen und auch das schlechte Wetter war schnell vergessen. Vielen Dank nochmal!
