How to Get There
Halloren Chocolate Factory is located in Halle (Saale), about 10 minutes east of the Old Town. The closest tram station is Fiete-Schulze-Straße (Line 7).
When to Get There
The museum is open daily, year-round, but the most festive time to visit is at Christmastime, when the museum shop and café are full of holiday-themed chocolates.
Halloren’s most renowned chocolates are Halloren-Kugeln: ball-shaped chocolates with various fillings. Named after Germany’s early salt workers, the Halloren, the balls are shaped like the distinctive round buttons that adorned their traditional uniforms. There’s a huge variety of flavors, including stracciatella, nougat, rum-raisin, chocolate-caramel, and Irish cream.
