What people are saying about Leipzig

Hurray after a year of pandemic a joint canoe tour on the wedding day. Everything fit - the weather, not too hot, was perfect. A view of individual sections of Leipzig from the water is great. On the way back through the city by car, we liked the water side better in places. :-) The guide was great, definitely take your camera and something to drink. We will be back definitely.

We had a great travel guide, he told us so much about Leipzig! The nature in the city center was also very beautiful, definitely recommended!

A great experience. We got to know Leipzig and its lakes from a different perspective.
