Things aren’t that obvious in Halle (Saale), Germany. You won’t expect to find a lovely old city center behind those GDR-style Plattenbauten close to the railway station. You might not think that there is a chocolate factory and museum. But one thing you can’t ignore if you arrive: a big advertisement in form of a globe between the railway tracks reminds you that there is a zoological garden.
Some airports in Germany have not been built because many people want to fly from these places, but mostly because of political reasons – every region wants to have a terminal. This airport was built in 1927 for another reason: air cargo. Located near the cities Halle (Saale) and Leipzig on the ground of the small town Schkeuditz it is the #2 air cargo hub of Germany.
