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
