Top 7 things to see in Leipzig

One of the new centers for art and culture in Germany, and a stone's throw from Berlin, Leipzig is a city in its prime and a new tourist hot spot. But people also come for its history. Here's a few sites worth seeing.

Planning Your Visit

  • When to visit Leipzig?

    Although you can visit all year round and still see the sights, the weather in the summer months is great, making it a perfect holiday destination to get some sun and culture!

  • How many nights?

    With plenty to see and do, three night would be the perfect amount of time to get to know the city. Or, why not combine it with a trip to Berlin and stay a night or two in each city?

The trip did what I hoped: gave me an oveview of the city.

It was fine once it started. Being winter, the number of departures was reduced and I waited for it to start longer than my patience lasted. But I suppose that's inevitable as they can't afford buses going round empty. They need to install the recordings in other languages soon. My German wasn't really good enough to get the best from the commentary.

Informative tour, but please note the tour is in German!

Though it is noted in the tour description, it was not immediately clear to me that the tour would be conducted in German only. This was okay for me but my partner speaks only a little German. Apart from this the tour was very comprehensive and gave a good overview of the main sites and informed us about the history of Leipzig.

thoroughly enjoyed both tours of the old city and surrounding suburbs

Our guide Sylvia was excellent and very fluent in English. We thoroughly enjoyed both the walking tour of the old city and the bus tour of surrounding suburbs to learn much more about the origins of Leipzig.

Great tour with very knowledgeable guide

The guide Isa was wonderful. We had three generations with us and she was very patient. Her knowledge of Leipzig was excellent and she was passionate about the city and its history.

Loved the personalised tour and learnt so much around the centre. Loved all the history of the various buildings. A fantastic tour and didn't expect all this history in Lepzig!!
