Leipzig is such a great city and the Market Square is so awesome. There are tons of shops of all varieties in the area, restaurants, bookstores, antique stores and many historical sites. Market Square is at the heart of it all.

This is a great place. Once the venue of a medieval market, it is now a place where tourists can enjoy a meal or glass of beer. It is popular with locals too, there was a beer fest when I was there, with large video screens and it was great fun

Traditional German market, with flowers, food, and home-baked, home-grown delicacies. Wonderful place to gather with friends and family!

Leipzig comes alive with Christmas spirit at this time of year and the markets are truly amazing. The whole city, particularly the market square, is full of stalls offering everything from beautifully crafted Christmas decorations, to clothing, food, and of course Gluhwein (I hope I spelled that right) which is warm spiced wine, perfect for the climate in December.

Leipzig in general is nice, the places are open, buildings are ancient and well kept, light is somewhat low, which gives an eerie atmosphere. I'll come back for pleasure.

The Market Place is surrounded by many fine buildings; the square was a hive of activity during our visit as it was reunification weekend with live music and many stalls selling their wares. Some of the square is sectioned off because of the completion of the City Rail Tunnel below ground but this does not affect too much the atmosphere... More
