We attended the guided tour of Leipzig. We're recent migrants to Leipzig from Australia and figured it would give us a feel for our new home. The tour costs a very affordable 15€ and includes a one hour walking tour then two hours on a bus (without stops). The afternoon tours are offered in German and English (my Deutsch is... More

I took the 2,5 hour walking tour for only €8,-. Starting point is the tourist information center at the Katherinastrasse. They have a morning and afternoon version and there is no need to make a reservation. Just go there 15 minutes before start (11:00 and 14:00h) and buy a ticket. Our tourguide was a little hard to understand as she... More

First off I want to say the tour was good. It started at the information centre for a 1 hour stroll/walking through town and then a bus tour. The walking tour was done with explanations of the major sites to see in the inner city. The tour ended at the St. Thomas Church were the bus tour started. The bus... More

Nice, general bus tour around the city of Leipzig. Tickets must be bought at the city Tourist Information office (as opposed to buying at the bus). The 1:30PM tour kicks off with a 1-hour walking tour, ending at St Thomas Church, where the bus tour begins at 2:30PM. The tours can be taken together (15 Euros) or separately (5 Euros... More

This tour was, for us, the ideal introduction to the city of Leipzig, which we were visiting for the first time. We enjoyed both the walking part, which was around the heart of the old town, and then the bus tour, which included some of the outer parts and newer developments of the city. Our tour guide was very articulate,... More

We went on this tour on a day trip to Leipzig and took the 1:30 tour in English. The earlier tour was in German only. The guide spoke in both English and German and we were the only two that spoke English and it was not always German first. I could pick up bits in German and there was nothing... More

Lucky with the weather being sunny on the day we decided to do the open bus day tour. Interesting to see different parts of Leipzig and the surrounding areas. Managed to haggle the tour down from 13 euros to 10 euros. However, the tour was in German, but we were provided with English brouchers and translations of what was being... More

Tour consists of two parts: walking and by bus. For only 2,5 hours you can visit all the major sights in this wonderful city. Tour is in German and English at the same time. At first it was weird to hear the same info in one language after another but if you study German/English you can treat it as a... More

We followed the advice of a friend who had raved about this bus tour and thus we also had the chance to learn a lot about Leipzig in a couple of hours while enjoying glorious weather from the convertible top of a double-decker bus and trying to listen to our entertaining and very competent guide. Just a pity that several... More

Whilst on a recent (and first) visit to Leipzig with my partner, we felt it might be useful to do a city tour offered from the local tourist information office. I have travelled in many cities around the world and these tours are sadly inconsistent and not always educational or good value. This tour I can honestly say was the... More
