Halle Things to Do: 73 reviews and 197 photos
Rathausstraße is another street in the old town that deserves attention because of its well restored historical houses. It is a mix of baroque and 19th/early 20th century architecture.
Most notable: the baroque house Rathausstraße 15, Jena'sches Fräuleinstift. This house belonged to the first curator of Halle University and high-ranking government official in Brandenburg and the Duchy of Magdeburg, Gottfried von Jena. In his will he created a foundation for unmarried noble ladies of calvinist faith, and from his death in 1703 until 1962 the house was inhabited by the foundation.
Have a look at the roof of the building - don't those windows look like eyes?
Directions: The street leads from market square eastwards, it begins between the new city hall and the building of the city archive. In the east it reaches the ring road next to the neorenaissance court building.
