Halle, Gemany

Halle is the largest city in the German State of Saxony-Anhalt.
Halle's early history is connected with harvesting of salt. In fact the name Halle may be derived from a Pre-Germanic word for salt. The name of the river Saale also contains the Germanic root for salt and salt-harvesting has taken place in Halle at least since the time of the Bronze Age.
Baroque composer Georg Friedrich Händel was born in Halle on February 23, 1685, and stayed 17 years.

uff how i love cities in night views! Thank you Heike from Halle.
