Goethe hung out here!

with a short walk from many of hotels located in city centre you will reach Augustusplatz where the Opera House and Gewandhaus is located. Recommended to visit on your trip to Leippzig.

with interesting architecture around it, a mixture of ancient, stalinistic, highly modern. And very lively.

We overlooked this from our hotel. Came to life when a fruit and veg plus flower market set up. Nicely lit at night.

At Augustusplatz there's opera, gewandhaus concerthall and university building, which is very peculiar. At DDR there was old medieval church, which was detonated away, and ugly university campus built instead. Couple of years ago when it was time to rip off ruined university buildings new premises for university were built to mimic facade of church. Result, in gray stone, is... More

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.
