Halle Things to Do: 57 reviews and 158 photos

by Kathrin_E

On Februar 23, 1685 Halle's most famous citizen was born in this house: the composer Georg Friedrich Händel. His father, the surgeon Georg Händel, had bought it in 1666. Georg Friedrich spent his childhood and youth in this house until he moved to Hamburg in 1703.

The house is now a museum which presents an exhibition on Händel's life and works and a collection of musical instruments. It is interesting to see, although the permanent 'irrigation' with recorded music in each and every room can become a bit annoying after a while.
Concerts, recitals and lectures take place in the house regularly.

Address: corner Große Nikolaistraße and Kleine Ulrichstraße
