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).

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

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.
