Beautifully restored buildings on one side, modern architecture on the other. During our stay there were live concerts every night, and the square was filled with people eating and drinking at the tables set out in front of the stage. It was difficult to tear ourselves away.

The markt includes shops and cafes, surrounded by traditional architecture and beautiful churches, but there are also spots to sit quietly and enjoy an afternoon outside. We also encountered various street musicians, including an accordionist, a guitarist, and a Russian troupe.

Square was surrounded by some nice architecture but little going on. Look rather spoilt by entrances to subways.

You probably won't miss this if you are walking through Leipzig. It is very pretty and there is a lot going on here, generally. Be sure to see it. I'd hate to miss it, but there isn't a lot to miss.

Just an average marked where they had food stuff, seems like a lot of local food, flowers and bakeries (also some warm food, like sausages etc.). We just went through, even though the marked was nothing in particular, the buildings around were nice too see (like the old town hall).

Great place for a stroll, with little shops and booths with food and snacks! Lovely buildings and great photo opportunities!
