Untouched by ww2 bombs, this lovely little square in the centre of Leipzig deserves a visit. It's very beautiful, and has some really nice buildings surrounding it, and market days are really special too. Make sure you stop here.

There were several Christmas markets; I believe there were a total of 5. We enjoyed our time while visiting Leipzig. If you like coffee, don't miss the Tchibo store off the square.

If you are in Leipzig around d Christmas time be sure to visit the Christmas market, especially in the evening when people get off of work. It is packed with people having hot mulled wine and snacks. And of course there are thousands of Christmas ornaments and crafts.

5 markets in 5 days may have been ambitious, but so far so good. Very nice market. Lots of history. Westin was nice and convenient to train and market. See my review of Auerbachs Keller if you go.

Maybe it is because Christmas time is approaching, the Christmas market just makes the market square more lively and joyful. There are the St. Thomas Church where Bach has worked for 25 years, various museums and classical music house as well as opera house. The best part is to get an original Thüringen Bratwurst and a cup of Glühwein!

A varied amount of products, from fresh meat to freshly made smoothies. I bought a rotisserie chicken leg (delicious!!) some strawberries (so sweet!) and also an apple as I fancied a snack. Everything you need in a food market is right there.

We were there the last weekend of an actual market where food and goods were sold by many different merchants. In front of the old Rathaus the other sides now house modern restaurants and shops which was much different then the drab disrepair I saw 25 years ago when I was last year. Leipzig has come a long way, say... More

We were there on Reunification weekend basically a long weekend. Downtown Leipzig was packed and so was Marketplatz. It's basically what I was hoping to experience; a cool street scene with chill people wandering around taking in a beautiful, old and culturally proud city with super interesting street life. Market stalls were interesting with lots of artists, handicraft and local... More

The last weekend of September sees the annual Thanksgiving Festival.....with lots of food and bars in the square and excellent entertainment made for a thoroughly enjoyable Sunday afternoon. The square was full to capacity with all ages having fun.
