    Flour and meat, beer and sugar - at the end of the 19th century, almost everything the city dwellers needed was being produced in Halle. And in a big way! Some of the impressive industrial buildings such as the old flour mill and the former brewery are still standing today and are waiting for your visit or a second life.It starts at Halle main station. You can easily get here by S-Bahn, regional trains or even by bus. Via the southern city center you walk towards Saale. As soon as you reach the Böllberger Weg, the square tower of the Hildebrandschen Mühlenwerke AG, also known as the Böllberger Mühle, rises up in front of you. In the building complex, which is now more than 130 years old, around 110 tons of flour were produced every day until 1975. Today the old flour mill is a listed building.Cross the Saale over the Rabeninselbrücke. If you like, you can completely circle the small island once. From the east bank you have another nice view of the Böllberger Mühle. Small bridges bring you again and again to another island in the Saale and finally along the powder pastures to the view over the former Freyberg brewery. It also dates from the late 19th century and was one of the largest private breweries in Germany. Luxury apartments are to be built here soon.Once you have passed the slate bridge, the tour takes you to the historic market square with its impressive church. A perfect place to end the journey through history before heading back to the main train station.
