About the city
City of Leipzig
A great past and a promising future.
As a city of culture, Leipzig is itself also a touristic highlight. Barely any other city boasts such a great tradition of music as Leipzig. Names such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy or Richard Wagner are inextricably associated with Leipzig. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who studied in Leipzig, immortalised the Auerbachs Keller with the scene «Auerbachs Keller in Leipzig» in his work «Faust».
In the historical city centre the unique arcades and trading courts, the modern shops and the railway station mall at this major railway terminus are a real treat for those wanting to shop or those who enjoy a wander around.
A vibrant metropolis, a blend of historical heritage and historical modernism await you. Leipzig is one of the most attractive cities in the very heart of Europe.
