Leipzig combines the best from the past and the hippest from today. From nostalgic coffeehouse culture to cool bars, cultural highlights or a classical concert, Leipzig has something for every taste. And speaking of taste, visitors to the city have got to try the famous "Leipziger Allerlei", a delicious plate of young peas, carrots, asparagus and morels – ideally served with freshwater lobster.
THE EXACT LOCATION
Thinking of exploring Leipzig on foot, heading out into nature by bike or taking the next train into the surrounding area? With or without a car, the city and the region are easy to explore. Just step in front of the door and off you go.
The cult of coffee
Did you know that Leipzig is famous for its coffeehouses? The café & restaurant Zum Arabischen Coffe Baum in the middle of the old town is one of the oldest coffeehouses in Europe and comes with a historical as well as creaking floor and chairs on several storeys. The Kaffeehaus Riquet with its unique Art Nouveau facade is an eye-catcher in more than one ways. At the Café Kandler and Café Corso, tattling coffee addicts also get their money's worth. And what goes with coffee? Leipziger Lerchen – delicious shortcrust pastry pies filled with almond paste and jam, and definitely not with any birds after which the pastry is named.
For pedestrians only
Lose yourself in the more than 20 shopping arcades and open courtyards of the Leipzig city centre. This labyrinth is reserved for pedestrians. Once in a while, take your eyes off the nifty shops, hidden restaurants and bars, and look above: some of the arcades and courtyards are a real architectural marvel.
Lifestyle in Leipzig
Apart from the bars and restaurants around the Barfußgässchen alley and the cultural centre Moritzbastei in the inner city, the Connewitz district is the place to be for night owls. At the weekend, fans of techno music from all over the world flock to the Distillery Club, while drum lessons, theatres, discos and international concerts are held on the premises of the Werk II. The Karl-Liebrecht-Strasse street ("Karli" for short) in the Südvorstadt district is the pub strip in the middle of the student quarter and perfect for bar hoppers. Search and find extravagant souvenirs at the night flea market in the Kohlrabizirkus hall.
Thanks to more than a thousand years of history, Leizpig has a lot of offer. Take, for example, the Old Town Hall and the Market Place (Altes Rathaus, Markt), where the farmers' market is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the Christmas market takes place during Advent season. The Nikolaikirche church was the starting point of the 1989 Peaceful Revolution in East Germany. The Old Stock Exchange (Alte Handelsbörse) at the Naschmarkt is a sight to behold, Auerbachs Keller is a historical restaurant known from Goethe's Faust, the Monument to the Battle of the Nations (Völkerschlachtdenkmal) is an impressively large structure, the Asisi Panometer exhibits the world's biggest panorama pictures and the Gewandhaus is home to one of the country's most accomplished orchestras.
