Hallors and Saline Museum in Halle (Saale), Germany

The Hallors and Saline Museum opened in the former Royal Prussian saline to Halle (Saale) in 1967. Members of a brotherhood of salt producers – the Hallors – still present traditional salt production in its rooms at regular events. [German]

Costume of a hallor and lance for water yousting

Besides the costumes of the Hallors with its typical 18 buttons, the lance is an object worth a look. With such lances, people in Halle still practise the tradition of water jousting. A chance to experience this traditional game is the annual lantern festival (Hallesches Laternenfest).
