Augustusplatz is a beautiful square where the opera house, the music hall and the university of Leipzig are located! Every one of these buildings is absolutelly astonishing! You can see three styles of architectures. The communist one (Opera house), the modern one (music hall) and the even more modern (University). A few minutes from there is the Grassimuseum!

After a walk through the altstadt streets a nice break is needed. The stairs at the oper are perfect for it. Just grab a coffee and enjoy it. But only works if the weather is nice

It's not the square that is great, it is what is on the square, the Gewandhaus concert hall and the opera house. It is also a place where most of the trams pass (even more at the train station), and it is the entrance to the entrance to the inner city (as is the train station).

The location of the mass, peaceful demonstration of 9th October 1989, which commenced at Nikolaikirche, and location of the Leipzig Operhaus and University, Augustusplatz is well worth visiting on your tour of Leipzig.

There are two main plazas in Leipzig, the old Marktplatz and the newer Augustusplatz. I prefer the latter. Not only because its extraordinary architectural diversity with the Gewandhaus and the new university building with the skyscraper, but also because it's always crowded, even on Sundays, when other streets in the city center are empty. I can only recommend, but it's... More

Now that the University building is nearing completion this square with the Gewandhaus and Opera is gaining in attractiveness.

Oper Leipzig and Gerwandhaus Orchester. In the summer kids bathe in the fountain. It is a very pleasant square--though not special like the Marktplatz.

Interesting place.One side the Opera building in its charming bombastig DDR style, the other the new Gewandshause or Concert hall. In the middle the new building to replace the centuries old Church taken down by the Sowjets and part of the University buildings. There is also the MDR tall building at the back of the Concert hall which you can... More

You will find Starbuck here along with Lukas, which has the best baked goods in Leipzig. Many good restaurants down the pedestrian roadway that leads to the marketplace.
