Leipzig is full of these types of arcades. All are well worth a visit. lots of small shops with great products can be found when you wander along the various Passages(Arcades).

Full of high end shops (bring money) and the Auerbach's Keller. The latter is worth visiting. The food is good, service proficient, and it is an institution.

If you stay in Leipzig and you enter the Maedler Passage......don't miss Auerbach's Keller. This ancient restaurant was already described in Goethe's "Faust".

The Madler Passage is a wonderful shopping center. It has a very nice old architecture. The history of Auerbach's Keller is very impressive. It's a must-see for visitors.

This is the most beautiful passage in Leipzig, and also the most famous. Two of the city's best restaurants are located here, just like many stores. Some of them are better, some of them are not so interesting, but unfortunately everything is closed on Sundays...More
