The canal is very beautiful and a pleasant place for a stroll. There are some old industrial buildings here, which have been restored and renovated. They are now being used as offices, shops, restaurants or private residences.

We loved this trip along the winding canals that intersect the city of Leipzig. We rented a 4 person canoe from Franziskaner for about 40 Euros for the day (5 hour trip) and stopped at a lovely restaurant for lunch.

Renting a small boat and exploring the Kanal alone or with someone else is a great experience. Beeing in the Kanal you can see Leipzig from totally other angle.
