Absolutely fabulous place in the city of Leipzig and definitely my favourite place... especially for hanging around with friends. You can even go there for a walk just alone ... and contemplate only just a little bit xD

This is number 8 on things to do in Leipzig here on TripAdvisor. It has some lovely reviews giving marks of 5/5 quite often. I can only presume that I went to the wrong part of the canal as it was definitely worth missing! It may look picturesque on all the photos but the reality was finding filthy dirty water, rubbish strewn all over it's banks, the walkway that ran parallel with the canal was full of graffiti along with every arched bridge that crossed the canal. Furthermore, I would not have felt very safe here after dark. It's also a bit out of the city so unless you get the exact place correct along the canal for these supposed beautiful photos, I wouldn't bother.

Karl Heine Kanal is a nice place for walking through the Leipzig City. Very nice looking during the sunny day and in the evening time. You may also get a boat tour and take a boat trip.

We rented some kayaks and went trough the canal. It was a sunny day and the views were perfect. There are some restaurants along the canal, such as Was kost das? (greek restaurant) which is highly recommended

I went there summer time and winter time. On Winter the view in here is very romantic, and you can see the beautiful houses has all Christmas the decorations. On summer we can take a ride on the canal, feels like a little Venice in Italy. You can see all the houses around are beautiful. Some young age is swimming and jumping from some spots when you go along the lake. A very lazy vacation and excellent experience. Definitely will do it again every summer.
