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?

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!!

We walked more than half the Leipzig Music Trail with Trudy, who was pleasant and knowledgeable, and clearly loves her city and the music in it. A very enjoyable morning!

Excellent tour of Leipzig with her buildings + history

Thanks to the guide we got a a good insight of the history of Leipzig and her inhabitants and the significance of the city through the ages in a tour of 2 hours.
