Great on a sunny day

On a lovely sunny day we wandered round the market. Stopped for a beer and something to eat and generally chilled. Would not recommend in the rain.

A very large open are in the centre of the city. Quiet during our Sunday afternoon visit, but could imagine it being a hive of activity on other occasions. Interesting buildings surround the square.

Leipzig is worth a visit, for real! There is much to see and discover, best by walking down the streets, stroll and admire. One must explore the marketplace too! Surrounded by well-preserved buildings, partially several hundred years old, I guess. Much gastronomy around the market. You will find your favourite place here - enjoy Leipzig.

we visited dresden and leipzig that week. Dresden is for tourist, leipzig more the working city, which makes it more lively. Market square is attractive.

The top floor is free and traces much of the modern history of the city The floor below costs 6 Euro and has a very interesting colection... More

You cannot visit Leipzig and not explore the Market Square. There are many stores and restaurants. My favourite method to get there was by bike (through the park) but you can catch a tram or the subway too.

The market square is a lovely space to walk around and shop; also, on certain days there are various days when market stalls open up selling food and wine. I don't know when those days are, I'm afraid, but if you're in Leipzig for a few days you'll find out! It's also close to the Bach house and the Tomaskirche,... More

Market Square is a perfect location to see the preserved arcitcture and cobblestone streets in the city center. Every weekend something is going on here whether it is a public viewing of the Euro Cup, a concert during Bach Fest, or the shops and giant tree for the Christmas Market. Some of the best restaurants in Leipzig are in this... More
