…by rail

The main railway station in Halle (Saale) is centrally located. Directly next to the station is the Riebeckplatz, the New Federal State’s most busy traffic junction and also the largest urban roundabout in Germany. This is where a number of trunk roads and tramlines meet thus providing numerous possibilities of travelling to other parts of the town.
