    The sugar-sweet Halloren balls are probably Halle's best-known product for every sweet tooth. But did you know that the chocolate factory, in which sweets are still lovingly produced today, is the oldest in Germany? Unfortunately, not all locations that you will visit on this tour share this happy fate. The old buildings, which have been gnawing at the ravages of time, exude a very special charm.Since Industrie Halles was located in the center, especially at its heyday at the end of the 19th century, you start the tour very centrally at Halle main station. You can reach it by S-Bahn, buses and of course the regional trains of the MDV. You walk past the freight yard and after a few turns you will find yourself on Freiimfelder Straße. In front of you lies the extensive grounds of the old slaughterhouse. For almost exactly 100 years, the cattle yard and slaughterhouse in the heart of Halle supplied its residents with fresh meat until it was shut down shortly after the fall of the Wall. Since then, nature has gradually taken over the listed contemporary witnesses.After around three kilometers, your hike will be sweetened with the delicacies of the Halloren Chocolate Museum. Here you not only learn a lot about the history of chocolate, but you can even make your own bar during a seminar. With a chocolate-smeared mouth, we continue south.The path takes you out into the fields for a short distance and then over the train tracks back into the city center. Here, at the so-called Thuringian freight yard, the Sculpture Park Europe was created in 2019. Made of rusty metal, you will find typical elements of European countries here. Can you guess which sculpture belongs to which country? The old malt factory, which is located directly at the park, did not end as a lost place, by the way. The renovated building now houses a fitness studio, among other things.From the Thuringian train station, the old port railway line, now a path for pedestrians and cyclists, leads you back to the main train station.
