Leipzig is the new creative hotspot and the fastest growing city in Germany and full of history and culture at the same time. Goethe and Bach lived and worked here, the peaceful Monday demonstrations started in Leipzig and lead to the fall of the wall. Today, the art nuveau city center and the many different quarters are home of a vital art and music scene and hip and trendy restaurtants and clubs.
The imposing building of Leipzig Central Station is defnitly a highlight of the city centre. The beautiful terminus station with over 140 shops invites to shop all week long. By the way, Leipzig Central Station is the largest railway terminus in Europe with its 23 platforms!
Leipzig has over 30 shopping malls and courtyards, many of them dating back over 500 years due to the long tradition of Leipzig as fair city. The most known one is Mädlerpassage, which is the entrance to Auerbachs Keller.
Auerbachs Keller is the most famous and second oldest restaurant in Leipzig. It owes its worldwide fame to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. It was already one of the city's most popular wine bars in the 16th century.
The 3.3-kilometer long Karl-Heine canal is today a cultural monument and a popular excursion destination in Leipzig.
It can be used by small boats and offers a wonderful view of the restored villas and industrial lofts in the trendy district Plagwitz.
Thanks to a cycling and hiking trail alongside the canal, you can also explore it by foot and with the bicycle!
