Adjacent to the Red Tower (Roter Turm), the four towers of the Marktkirche are the emblems of the city. The late Gothic Halle church was built in the 16th century. Martin Luther preached here several times and the original death mask and death hands of the religious reformer can be viewed here. Yet further famous names are associated with this church: Händel was baptized here and the eldest son of Johann Sebastian Bach, Freidemann Bach, was employed here as the organist for many years.
