The old school is now a pleasant restaurant lying a few metres from the church. The restaurant plays music by Mozart which helps create a calm atmosphere in which to enjoy your meal. The menu is typically German and the quality of cooking is acceptable but not great.

We lunched twice here, and both times had very nice salads - frisee, seared prawns, that kind of thing, washed down with beers. Good, friendly service. Good views across the square to the Nikolai Kirche, and accordion-playing street musicians.

Simple decor, good food and atmosphere. Don't appear to sell small glasses of beer! Loos downstairs and you will need a token

We stopped here for a break from the Christmas market fare! Service was great with English menus that even gave a history of the building over the years! We enjoyed the seasonal menu especially the mushroom soup, hirsch goulash with nut spatzle and the traditional Leipzig Schnudendunker which is a hearty baked soufflé with mincet meat, potatoes and cheese.
