Leipzig is known as a trading city, so the main square of the city must be the market square. Where trade was - there public life was. It is logical that the court was made the same here. Executions also were carried out at this...More

The Market Square is a good place to visit to see the old buildings of Leipzig. The old Town Hall is particularly interesting and there are many other fine old buildings around three sides of the square

We saw the Market Square during the Christmas market season so we were unable to see the beautiful buildings that surrounded the square. Definitely will go back to see the square in it's more natural state.

Having visited Nurnberg, Erlangen and Hersbruck Christmas markets, I have to rate Leipzig as my favorite. The stalls were unique (there wasn't redundancy), and they weren't extremely crowded. I had a wonderful time!

The Leipzig Christmas Market is set up in the Market Square. Hundreds of booths. Tens of thousands of people at night. This is everything that I heard about with German Christmas Markets. Glad we planned our trip so we could experience this. Worth traveling to...More

The Market Square in Leipzig looks like many if significant European cities. It is ringed with important buildings, shop and restaurants. It is also the site of a fascinating market selling fruits and vegetables, meats, cheeses, curios, fish, baked goods and many other items. It...More

This is one of the plainer, less interesting markt Squares we have seen! Some of the buildings overlooking the square are nice, but I wouldn't consider it a must-see while in Leipzig.
