What to expect

The flair of the traditional trade fair town Leipzig is particularly influenced by its historic centre, which features numerous market squares and unique arcades. Though they date from centuries past, they are still as full of life as they have ever been.

During your group tour to Leipzig you will stroll through the beautiful city centre, revel in its outgoing, lively atmosphere and visit the Old City Hall, St. Thomas’s Church and St. Nicholas’s Church. Follow in the footsteps of renowned musicians such as Bach, Telemann, Mendelssohn and Schumann, who are all inextricably linked with Leipzig, and see the city through the eyes of Goethe as you pass through the Mädlerpassage (a historic covered passage) – the location of the famous “Auerbachs Keller” restaurant.

In the spring of 2013 I was lucky enough to take part in a bus tour of Leipzig. I’d been to the city many times before, but I’d never seen it from that perspective. I suppose I’ve always taken in the sights of the city centre on foot, so the bus introduced me to lots of things I’d not seen on previous visits. I was amazed at how many parks and woods there are in the city! We went past a charming little palace in Gohlis (the “Schlösschen”), old town houses and magnificent villas. Our route naturally also included the Monument to the Battle of Nations. I was surprised by the number of waterways that criss-cross Leipzig, and after the bus tour I took the opportunity to take a boat through the beautiful Plagwitz district. We floated past former factory buildings that have been converted to modern apartments, and I felt like I was in Venice rather than Leipzig! I’d say the boat trip was the highlight of my day.
