We were guided to the Kümmel Apotheke, a delightful cafe/restaurant for lunch by our friend. Having toured the Christmas markets we were frozen and thawed out with delicious soup. I had chicken and vegetable that very down really well and my wife and her cousin had Hungarian gullasch that they enjoyed. The arcade had a very bright Christmas tree that... More

Not sure why enclosed places allow smoking. This passage, while historic, is like walking through a smoking tunnel. I see nothing of historic value in the walk.

Leipzig is full of these types of arcades. All are well worth a visit. lots of small shops with great products can be found when you wander along the various Passages(Arcades).

Full of high end shops (bring money) and the Auerbach's Keller. The latter is worth visiting. The food is good, service proficient, and it is an institution.

If you stay in Leipzig and you enter the Maedler Passage......don't miss Auerbach's Keller. This ancient restaurant was already described in Goethe's "Faust".

The Madler Passage is a wonderful shopping center. It has a very nice old architecture. The history of Auerbach's Keller is very impressive. It's a must-see for visitors.

Leipzig has many arcades as we would call them; passages or Hof's as the Germans call them. They are all unique and easy to spot and walk through. This one, the Madder Passage, is just near the Market Sq and old Rathaus/city hall. You can't miss it. I had dinner one night in the Keller beneath it which inspired Goethe... More

In this lovely walk there are many shops that are worth walking into. Once you've shopped until you've dropped you must stop at Gourmetage for a drink or a meal with a glass of wine and watch the people walk by. Might not know they serve meals. Looks like at wine store with a butcher shoppe. Yes... but great meals... More
