This is just one example of the lovely buildings to be found in the centre of this city. Very easy to walk around the old town and soak up the atmosphere. Plenty of places to site and eat or drink too.

A well-laid out & informative museum over 2 floors of a fantastic medieval building. Really wish that I had had more time to spend, especially on Leipzig's more recent history. Restored 1820s model of the medieval city would have been worth the visit on its...More
