Field Trip: Halle an der Saale, Pt. II

Check out part II of GDR Objectified’s Field Trip to Halle an der Saale. In this visit, we finish exploring the Neustadt, a socialist-era district on the city’s western edge which was once home to nearly 100,000 residents. We’re joined by Micha B., an eastern German who grew up there, so there’s some insider perspective on this fascinating place!

    I enjoyed your field trips to Halle and Halle Neustadt (now I believe a unified town) very much. They were really informative and the input from people who lived there was very valuable. I didn’t know that block 10 in Neustadt had originally been intended to be built on stilts.
