Leipzig - History, art and culture

Leipzig, Germany, Cityview

In 1497, Leipzig was granted imperial trade fair privileges, which is the basis of the city’s long trade fair tradition until today. Ever since being a center of commerce and culture, Leipzig has a lot to offer!

 

 

 

Hardly any other city can claim such a rich musical heritage as Leipzig. Names like Johann Sebastian Bach and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy are inextricably linked to Leipzig. Today, cultural enjoyment is still provided by the Gewandhaus, the Leipzig Opera or the world-famous St. Thomas Boys Choir. Johann Wolfgang Goethe studied in Leipzig and immortalized the restaurant Auerbachs Keller in his play “Faust”.

 

Owing to its unique system of passageways, the historic city center exudes a distinctive flair. Stylish boutiques and top department stores invite visitors to shop and stroll. Most of the city's sights are located within walking distance, e. g. the Old Town Hall, St. Thomas Church and St. Nicholas Church, which was the initial point of the peaceful Monday demonstrations that lead to the fall of the wall in 1989.

Graz is located about 200 km south of Vienna and is the second largest city in Austria. It is known for its charming old town, good food and an extensive cultural scene.

 

The heart of Graz's old town is formed by pedestrian zones, in which there are many cafés, shops and boutiques. The historic centre with its small streets and red roofs has even been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Above the old town on the Schlossberg is the most famous landmark of Graz, the Uhrturm (clock tower).

 

Graz was named European Capital of Culture in 2003 and took the opportunity to expand its wide range of museums and cultural offerings.

 

On a day trip to Southern Styria, also known as Austrian Tuscany, it is a must to visit the local vineyards, enjoy regional pumpkin products or stop at one of the traditional "Buschenschank" restaurants. 

And last but not least, once a year all hell breaks loose in Graz when Formula 1 arrives at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, only 74 km from Graz.

Due to its perfect location at the river Rhine, Cologne was already an important city during the Roman Empire and later became one of the largest and most powerful cities in northern Europe during the medieval age.

Today, the famous Cologne Dome is the major landmark in the city and still shows the importance the city once had. And the spirit of a proud city still shows in many aspects, like the carnival, which reaches its peak in a crazy parade through the city, or the Kölsch, a beer which is only brewed in Cologne.

The beautiful surrounding of Cologne is inviting as well – especially the romantic Rhine area south of Cologne, with its many castles and fortresses, the Lorely rock and vineyards producing the famous German Riesling wine.
