Leipzig has many arcades as we would call them; passages or Hof's as the Germans call them. They are all unique and easy to spot and walk through. This one, the Madder Passage, is just near the Market Sq and old Rathaus/city hall. You can't miss it. I had dinner one night in the Keller beneath it which inspired Goethe to write Faust. Auerbach's is it's name. It beautifully kept, painted and the food is good as are the wait staff. Try it at least once!

In this lovely walk there are many shops that are worth walking into. Once you've shopped until you've dropped you must stop at Gourmetage for a drink or a meal with a glass of wine and watch the people walk by. Might not know they serve meals. Looks like at wine store with a butcher shoppe. Yes... but great meals too. Tell your waiter what you have a taste for and let them make a recommendation with a wine pairing... best meal I had that week!

In a bit of a reversal of roles it is I who likes history and architecture, whilst my husband likes to shop, so this location managed to offer the perfect place to keep both of us happy. A meandering, beautifully crafted 19th C arcade of shops, restaurants and cafés offering something for everyone and housing some must-see locations - including excellent specialist stores for that one-off or must-have item or gift.

This is the most beautiful passage in Leipzig, and also the most famous. Two of the city's best restaurants are located here, just like many stores. Some of them are better, some of them are not so interesting, but unfortunately everything is closed on Sundays and public holidays, except for the restaurants of course.

Madler is one of several passages in the city. Shopping ranges from averaged-priced to designer level, but it's fun to look, especially if it's raining! For a small city, it's surprising to see so many up-scale stores. There is a wide variety of stores. I don't know the significance, but there is an assortment of statues and paintings related to Faust in this Passage. If you're planning on going, I suggest you research why they're there; I hadn't researched, so my loss. I did however see several walking tour groups so perhaps that's the way to hear about the city's passages. Oh, I found a few nice shops in which to spend my money!
