Like many others - a lovely fresh fruit and veggies market with lots of food trucks, selling fish and pastries and meat and sandwiches. The entire area surrounding is brand name stores, so it's a good shopping area, especially in a pleasant day.

I would not say this is much of an attraction, but it you will find some "old world" charm, a few interesting shops and many street vendors. i actually passed on eating in restaurants and bought food from vendors (very reasonable) and would eat and listen to the entrainment each night I was in this city.

Everyone LOVES an older URBAN market square to walk, shop, eat, drink, hang out and this is no exception to that emotion. Lots to do and see in this area you will walk a lot so bring comfortable boots or walking shoes...... the Doctor hit me with a helpful vote!

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 classic central european square, very nice buildings and architecture, underground station and very close to shops and restaurants, the clock is reminding you the hour..

The most picturesque square in town is a must visit. Especialy when there are any kind of events. But even admiring old buildings from a nearby caffes is an interesting activity....

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.
