St. Nicholas Church is not to be missed in Leipzig. Moving from the station you run into it inevitably. The Church was built in 1165 after Leipzig received the status of the city. Naturally it was built in the Romanesque style. However, it looks younger...More

Beautiful on the outside and inside. A point you can not miss in the city. After a great story and you can still learn more about the history of music and the city.
