The Franckeschen Stiftungen Halle (in the past: Glauchasche Anstalten) shelter a variety of cultural, scientific, pedagogic and social facilities. They were all founded by the theologian and pedagogue August Hermann Francke in 1698. The historic buildings are the one and only example of pedagogic and social utilitarian architecture on the German list of nominations for the UNESCO world cultural heritage. By now 50 different facilities have been well-established, including 4 schools, institutes of the Martin-Luther University, the cultural trust of federal government and the German institute of youth.


The student union Halle runs the cafeteria of the historic dining hall in house 27. The facility is near the city centre of Halle and can easily be reached by bike or public transport.


You can choose between different meals according to your budget and taste. A salad bar, fresh seasonal fruits and various desserts complete the range of products offered.
Apart from different kinds of coffee you can also enjoy cold drinks, sweets, cakes or snacks.


To reduce 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, too. You can find baby's high chairs and the free meal deal (called ''Kinderteller'') is provided for students' children.


Our rooms are also suitable for events. Therefore, we offer an especially designed range of foods and drinks to match your requirements and we gladly give advice for your special arrangement.
