We were here during the Handel festival. There were music, children's activities and some light refreshments available in the courtyard. A good information center for your Handel Pilgrimage to Halle. Nicely restored building and a good introduction to Handel's life story.

Well documented presentation on the life and career of GF Handel. For photography, the light from high windows in some rooms makes for reflections on the glass cases.

Hello - Is there information in Halle about FW Zachow, organist at Marktkirche and Handel's music teacher? My wife and I hope to visit Germany in October 2016 with a college group exploring the Reformation. I do not claim to be related to Zachow. Thank you. Sincerely, Jack (John) Zachow Seminole, Florida USA
