Wonderful party

Had a closing party at a professional meeting. Great place, it was a bomb shelter during world war II. The food was so and so. But free beer! Great music! Usually frequented by university students

The Linc Congress social event. It lies in an underground athmosphere, but very comfortable. Usual drinks for free. The worst is the event ends too soon

Make sure you go out on the terrace and look over the city. YOU are very high up and at a small cost can not remember how much it is well worth the view

Great atmosphere at night, with DJs and different music rooms but also good food during the day. You cannot leave Leipzig without seeing this place. Meeting point for students (germans and foreigns). Just in front of the University, with a very interesting history inside. A must see!

Sicne we had catering it is hard to rate what the standard food is like, but the space is amazing. The staff was friendly, and the drinks were good. Definitely worth a visit for an underground cafe experience.

Moritzbastei is the only remaining part of the ancient city fortifications. It retains the 16th century mood of a fortress, commissioned by Elector Moritz of Saxony in the 16th, of whom it retains the name. It is perfect for night entertainment and in fact it looks like a gathering point for the young people in town.
