Walk through the square on the way to other places nearby, relax and look around what the stores offer.

After I thought it would never get finished (during my lifetime) it is no longer dug up. This may have been a useless and expensive dig for nothing at all, since we hear they are cutting back on service of ICE trains to Leipzig, but at least it is over!

We visited on a sunny Sunday a lot of people in and around the square. Lovely architecture in the old town hall. Leipzig is a beautiful city many cafes and lovely shopping

You might think you are in Munich or Krakow, but no it is unheralded Leipzig. A great square with old and new buildings plus a metro underneath and decent bars and restaurants nearby

What a large yet quaint sitting in a historical district of Germany. This is a must visit walk while staying in Leipzig. You don't want to miss the old city hall while you are in Leipzig.

The Friday Market was full of produce, flowers, cheese, breads, and herbs and spices in January. I do not know what the warmer months might produce, but I enjoyed buying herbs and seasonings to take home to the states.

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.
