  • It is small but it is nice however I found that some modern constructions were blocking the view in case you want to take nice photos. For example, an elevator for the Sbahn in front of old houses...

  • On the square you can find the new town hall. Almost every day there’s market where you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables.

  • I visited Leipzig with my wife and we both enjoyed it very much. I was surprised at how many shops there were. The were some many side streets and interesting corners. The most interesting thing were the old buildings which I later found out some had been reconstructed after the war. Well they did a good job. Amazing place and worth a visit.
  • the historical center of the city contains its charm and calm, even most of the buildings were completely renovated or reconstructed after the war. der Markt is a must visit area indeed, and it is still works as a real marketplace on weekdays with decent produce
