Leipzig is full of courtyards and passages (known as Hofs in German) and Maedler Passage is one of the nicest. In addition to the famous Auerbach's Cellar, there is a delightful cafe called Mephisto, where you can sit with a glass of wine and watch the world go by.

Lots of small shops and coffee houses. The ceiling looks as if it is covered from leather but it is zint.

Well worth a visit as it portrays a Leipzig of yesteryear where the wealthy came to shop in their beautiful clothes not the jeans and trainers we see today. If you have a good imagination, stop and try to take yourself back to the hustle and bustle when people came to buy special presents or clothes for dances etc.

Beautiful arcade with luxury shops (go inside they do have sales all the time) and the entrance to Auerbach's Keller.

Not only the architecture and fancy boutiques are worth a visit but also the restaurants and cafes are absolutely fantastic. My favorite is "Kümmel Apotheke". Delicious food, even though it's a bit pricy.

We passed through on Christmas day, so there was very little activity in the town in general, and unfortunately all stores were closed. Nonetheless we thoroughly enjoyed walking through the Mädlerpassage, and felt as if we were transported back in time. I would love to return when all shops are open. It is a stunning space, with a uniquely vintage... More

We found this little gem inside the Madler Passage and had a lovely evening with amazing wines and fantastic antipasti platters, which were extremely reasonable priced. The rest of the passage offers some lovely stores and has been nicely done.

Like many other historical buildings throughout the city also madler passage was beautifully restored a couple of years back to shine again. Granit,Marmor and Wood to revive it's glamorous past. Mostly you can find upscale restaurant and shops there now.

Besides those in Brussels or Milan this is one of the very few shopping arcades which had survived the storms of many decades. If youl want to sense some history, this is the place. You can find some up-market shops and the famous Auerbach's Keller (cellar restaurant) which for our taste has been a little bit too touristy. But on... More
