It takes a while to find the path down but once you're on it you can make a lovely ride alongside the canal and see different styles of architecture, and people lounging on the quays and balconies.

One really sees the Venetian side of Leipzig. The canal is absolutely beautiful. A must! Take a boat tour through the canal to see another side of this interesting city. Tours offer beer & coffee for free on board.

It was lovely to see a side of Leipzig that was totally different from the touristy old city. The river boat guide was very knowledgeable but talked too fast for us to take in everything he said. We saw many old warehouses that have been converted into upscale condos and residences and overall, enjoyed this leisurely form of sightseeing.

This area has lots of graffiti everywhere so its great for students studying Art - Architecture or people looking... More

The canals are the most unique part of Leipzig. It's located in Plagwitz district between some old warehouses. It's still a bit underrated, it's not even mentioned in some tourist guides, which I don't understand. You can take a boat trip, or rent a small boat for a day, and discover the canals and the lakes nearby. There are some... More

We booked a tour online and spent about an hour on the Karl-Heine-Kanal on a small wooden boat. I wish we had booked a longer tour - it's so lovely and easygoing. Apparently, Leipzig has more bridges than Venice does. The Karl-Heine-Kanal is likely to become more touristy in a couple of years, but at the moments it appears not... More
