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

Have truck, will go to market! No tents needed here, the trucks pull in, put up an awning and voila, market day. Fish, meat, vegetables, beverages, desserts and ice cream and more. Plus just a whole lot of fun walking around the whole square.

I love markets. And this one was no exception. I loved seeing all of the food trucks & vendors. From one of the fish vendors I purchased a smoked white fish sandwich on fresh bread with dill and onions. It was one of my favorite eats in Germany! We purchased cakes from a bakery vendor. I especially liked the crumb... More

Throughout Europe, the towns and cities have their beautiful market squares. We were fortunate to be in Leipzig on a Friday when their farmer's market was in full throttle. Vendors of all kinds of wonderful foods: cheese, vegetables, fruits, fish, meat, flowers, pastries and baked goods. We had some delicious cakes, and my friend had the "best whitefish sandwich" of...
