Leipzig has one of the best Christmas Markets i have been to. Actually there are a number of the in and around the centre of town, and they are all good.

We came here during the Christmas market, which determines what the square is like: very busy: full of stalls and people. Must be very different in orher seasons.

Large open square with many interesting buildings surrounding, especially the old town hall. We visited on a Friday in summer and the attraction for us was the farmers' market. Beautiful fresh produce and at the end of the day, at very good prices.

Have been there just for the Christmas Market Events and it really has an atmosphere. Lots of market booths with great foods and Christmas stuff. Lots of aroma and fine smells. Enjoy it all over the hot-wine wrapped in a blanket in one of the nearby restaurant´s outside terrrace...

The street entertainment and the total atmosphere of this city square is fantastic. Surrounded by restaurants everywhere that you cannot miss by having something seating on the street under the shade of sun umbrellas
