Halle Things to Do: 57 reviews and 156 photos
The corner house where Händel was born has been there since at least 1558, when it was first mentioned in a document, so the house was already well over a hundred years old when he was born there.
The Old Town of Halle was fortunately not seriously damaged in the Second World War, but some of the houses were allowed to deteriorate under the GDR regime and were then torn down in the 1980s to make room for new pre-fab buildings.
Parts of the Old Town still exist, however, and the Händel House is not the only building that has been restored in recent years.
Some of the streets of the Old Town are carfree and there are always lots of people riding past the Händel House on bicycles.
