Marktkirche, Halle

The Market Church, the last great hall church, is considered one of the most important buildings of the late Gothic period in central Germany. George Frideric Handel was baptized here and received his first organ lessons. Johann Sebastian Bach inspected the new organ, and his son Wilhelm Friedemann Bach was an organist.

The photo shows the view of the nave towards the altar.

The church is one of the locations of the annual Handel Festival in Halle.
