An excursion from the hustle and bustle of the big city into the green is a treat for body and soul. A whopping 15.9 % of the city area are parks and green spaces. Halle thus offers a high quality of life in a natural environment. In addition to the Botanical Garden, the Amtsgarten and the Gimritzer Park, the Peißnitz Island, surrounded by the river, is a hub, fishing and meeting place for sports, games and picnics in the open air. Green thumbs up!
