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.

A big square bordered by churches, shopping centres and cafes. Come on market day to buy some delish fresh produce like cheese, fresh fruit and veg and flowers. Be aware that all supermarkets (besides Aldi) are closed on sunday so it's a good day to stock up.

Recommendation: Sit, have a pils and enjoy the façades. Do not miss an angle. Food is also good. No bad remarks to make.

Wandering round the market was an amazing experience - there was an abundance of local produce including flowers, fruit, meats, cheeses, herbs, and much more. It was vibrant, colourful, and educational! Definitely worth a visit, not least for its location set amidst impressive architecture and a huge range of shops and cafes.
