Who knew Leipzig had such a great square?

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... read more

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.

5 markets in 5 days may have been ambitious, but so far so good. Very nice market. Lots of history. Westin was nice and convenient to train and market. See my review of Auerbachs Keller if you go.

Maybe it is because Christmas time is approaching, the Christmas market just makes the market square more lively and joyful. There are the St. Thomas Church where Bach has worked for 25 years, various museums and classical music house as well as opera house. The best part is to get an original Thüringen Bratwurst and a cup of Glühwein!
