The so called ''Burg'' in Halle is the College of Arts ''Burg Giebichenstein''. The cafeteria is located on the castle above the right strand of the Saale on the campus of Arts (northern outskirts). In 1989 the renaming in castle “Giebichenstein Hochschule für Kunst und Design” took place. The college goes with the change of society, internationalisation and the complex tasks of arts and design.In 2010 the name changed again into castle “Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle” to emphasise the status of the college of arts and the associated educational reputation.

The cafeteria is not far from the city centre of Halle and can easily be reached by bike or public transport. In the summer the green courtyard provides a beautiful place to relax and to recover from studying and learning.

In the cafeteria delicious rolls, cakes and snacks are offered. Of course, you can always come around between your classes to enjoy a coffee. For lunch you can choose from different courses, which are served hot.
To reduce or avoid queues we introduced a payment based on the chip card. Therefore, you can find a chip on your student ID. Employees and guests of the university can receive a chip card as well.

Children are very welcome as well. You can find baby's high chairs and the free meal deal (called ''Kinderteller'') is provided for students' children.
