The old square had a busy market, mostly fruit and veg, which was interesting to wander round. It is surrounded by old buildings and has plenty of cafes for a refreshment stop.

.......surrounded by ancient (or rebuilt) beautiful buildings and the lovely arcades that the Germans call 'Passages'. A number of cafes round the square enable you to soak up the atmosphere and people watch to your hearts content.

The square itself is very photogenic, with the Old City Hall and the architecturally interesting buildings. The market is well-priced and varied. You can grab a snack and then people watch. Just be careful because those little old ladies will plow right into you on their way to the tomatoes.

It was just luck that we were here on a Tuesday which together with Sat. Is one of the days that farmers bring their produce for sale. It was fun walking around and looking at what they had as well as other locals selling baked bread and goods as well as other hand made items. The square is surrounded by... More

Freshest regional produce, we bought a selection of mushrooms, parsley, blueberries, plums and apricots. All went down very well forming the basis of breakfasts in our little campervan. A beautiful setting in Central Leipzig. Plenty of opportunity to sample local foods and hear some local music. We also shopped nearby in great department stores for clothes, Falke socks and wool.

A very pleasant heart to the city, with masses of open space and many beautifully restored old buildings bearing proud witness to the commercial and cultural greatness of Leipzig. In the autumn of 2013 bicentenary commemorations were taking place of the Battle of the Nations (1813), and young actors strolling around in ancient uniforms made the square extra-enjoyable.

I love the market place, there is usually something going on when I am there. Either market days with fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, etc. or a concert for the public or something else. Surrounded by lots of cafés there is always a good spot to find to have a drink and good food to watch the happenings at the market... More

After the construction of the city tunnel we were able to see the square finally finished, nice place to see the contrast between the old town hall and the new shops and buildings of the other side.. The essence of Leipzig...

A real treat for foodies on market day! From beer, to sausages, cheese, bread, cakes, art & handicraft. It is all to be seen & tasted here. Oh, flowers & fruit too. Vegetables and honey, candles, you name it.

It is in the dead center of the city. For many years the city center was torn up by the construction of the railway tunnel (the City Tunnel). Now it is whole again and lovely. It is especially nice when the market is held, usually Tuesday and Friday mornings.
