    Apply for March 2020

    Goal of our foundation is the step by step renovation of the over 120 years old building situated on a green island in the heart of the city of Halle on the Saale river.

    The beergarden and the subsidiary buildings including restaurant, kitchen, grillstation, storage and poject-room have been renovated and rebuilt after the 2013 flooding.

    Over 150 events of all kinds such as concerts, theater, environmental projects and courses are organised every year.

    Liebe Workaway Freunde
    Dear Workaway friends

    aufgrund fehlender Beherbergungskapazitäten und wegen der fortschreitenden Bauaktivitäten rund ums Haus können wir bis März 2020 keine Volontäre mehr aufnehmen.

    due to the lack of accommodation capacities and the progressing building activities arround the house we are not able to host volunteers until March 2020.

    Nächstes Jahr hoffen wir auch die ersten Räume im Haus nutzen zu können.

    Next year we hope to be able to use new rooms inside the house.

    Wir freuen uns auf neue Workaway Freunde ab März 2020

    Some sights to see in Halle:

    Halloren Chocolate Factory and visitors' centre, the oldest chocolate factory in Germany.

    Giebichenstein Castle, first mentioned in 961, in the north of the city centre on a hill above the Saale river, with a museum in the upper castle and the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in the lower castle.

    Moritzburg, a newer castle, was built between 1484 and 1503. It was the residence of the archbishops of Magdeburg, was destroyed in the Thirty Years' War, and has been a ruin afterwards for centuries. Partially reconstructed in 1901-1913, it is an Art Gallery today. The reconstruction was completed with the opening of new exposition rooms, designed by the Spanish architects Sobejano and Nieto, in 2010.
