3. Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus Tour through Leipzig with Walking Tour
Get to know the city of Leipzig on this relaxed tour in red double-decker buses featuring the city's famous 'Messemännchen' mascot. This roughly 2-hour city tour takes you to Leipzig's most interesting sights, spaced out across 10 different stops.
At any point, you can hop off at any of the stations, and hop back on whenever you'd like. The buses ride in regular, short intervals, so that you can stop or start at your own pace. The main meeting point for beginning or ending the tour is on Richard-Wagner-Straße.
If you choose a day ticket, you will receive a free 45-minute guided tour in addition to the 2-hour city tour. The guided tours take place from March until the beginning of the Christmas Markets.
You don't need to give prior notice to take part in the guided tours; simply come to the meeting point on Richard-Wagner Straße, across from the Central Train Station/East Hall. You will be led by professional tour guides who introduce you to Leipzig's sights in an entertaining way.
