Halle-Neustadt (popularly known as HaNeu, pronounced Ha-Noi) was a city in the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) . It was established as a new town on 12 May 1967 as an independent and autonomous city. The population in 1972 was 51,600 and in 1981 was more than 93,000. On 6 May 1990 Halle-Neustadt merged back into Halle again. The population has halved since then and was about 45.157 inhabitants on 31 December 2010. Halle Neustadt has been praised for being “sustainable,” as a result of its urban planning, which includes high density living, a tram line serving the central corridor and the regional suburban rail system (S-Bahn).
