“Very good work of reconstruction and restoration”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

It is located at the old and very well reconstructed and restored part of the city center, close to the train central station. There is many nice buildings and a big shopping area around.The central area is the main touristic point of the city.

“Impressive square”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

This large square is home to Leipzig's Christmas market and is a beautiful backdrop to all the holiday activities. But at any time of year, using the square as a base, be sure to visit the many shopping arcades in Leipzig. This city doesn't seem to get as much attention in many guidebooks as nearby Dresden but it is certainly worth the trip.

“Tuesdays and Fridays”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Fresh bread, vegetables and fruit from all over the EU, lovely flowers and a great chance to feed your sense of being where the real locals go for food. Don't miss the bread called Wurtzelpeter that is baked in an iron oven on the spot and which is warm and fresh and delicious.

“Beautifully restored”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

After many years of restauration, this now is once again the heart of Leipzig. Tuesdays and Fridays you can enjoy the fresh food market here and during Advent there is a beautiful Christmas Market. The vista to the new picture museum is stunning as is the view over to the church of St Thomas. A true city centre.
