We so enjoyed visiting this large and spacious city square on a market day. The variety of foods, flowers and items available were amazing. This square is large and cobbled so watch where you walk. We loved it!

This square is considered the heart of Leipzig, mainly because one side is dominated by the Town Hall ( Altes Rathaus), and there are many restaurants and shops on the other sides. There are farmers' markets usually on Tuesday and Thursday from 9am until 4pm,...More

Plenty of market stalls with fresh produce. If using an airbnb we would have enjoyed food shopping here. As the name implies a good central location.

The array of 18th c panel portraits on the Festsaal is top notch; superb little mediaeval art room (much more intense and interesting than the bland rooms in the London Nat Gall); and three lovely Cranachs (der Junger). V interesting couple of pictures, one on...More

Good place and a must but nothing special if you have seen any other main plaza. A couple of landmarks but pretty average.

Especially nice during the Christmas market this time of year, and not far from where J.S. Bach is buried.
