A typical Old Town German market square with genuine market stalls serving the inhabitants of Leipzig, although visitors can buy as well! It has the wonderful backdrop of the Rathaus and is a lovely, lively and colourful place

Of all the piazzas, squares and platzes of Europe, this one is certainly among the most beautiful ones. Maybe I feel this way because I went there during the winter (which I prefer considerably over the summer), and while it was very, very cold, it was visually stunning.

A nice open space which becomes lively when events are staged there. Buildings around are mostly high quality particularly the Altes Rathaus

Historical and always bustling with activity. Good place to absorb the culture! There are usually local merchants set up to sell goods. Weekends are filled with fairs and cultural happenings.

The Market Square should not be missed. The buildings are architecturally fascinating to look at and the details on the fronts should not be missed. Stand in the middle and just turn around slowly to take in everything.
