… by ship
The Halle (Saale) harbour offers a wide range of places of transhipment, transport-services and general-services for the logistics market. The additional value arises due to the interlinking of roads, railways and waterways. Due to its network character this approach is not only economical; it also offers an ecological approach due to its quantity- and cost-optimised transport-services. In addition to this Halle has a small town harbour at the Elisabethsaale with a public jetty for “water tourists”.
