Full description
Experience during this unique tour through Leipzig the most important sights and the most beautiful places of downtown which can only be discovered on foot, as well as the most well-known areas of the city and highlights. Our certified tour guide awaits you in the heart of the city at the new Katharinum (Tourist Information) to take you on an entertaining and informative tour which begins with a stroll through downtown. In addition to the famous Nikolai Church, the beautiful Specks Hof Passage, the small Snack Market and the market with Old Rathaus, you can expect landmarks of the city like the Mädler Passage with the Auerachs Cellar, Barthels Hof and the Thomas Church. After about an hour it continues in an air-conditioned tour bus to the highlights of Leipzig located outside of the city ring. In the exlusive Gohlis quarter two cultural sites draw the attention of visitors: an architectural jewel is the Gohlis castle, which was constructed as the bourgeois summer residence in the middle of the 18th Century. Very close by is the Schiller House, a modest farm house in which Friedrich Schiller lived in 1785 for several months and worked on "Ode to Joy". through the exclusive Waldstraßen Quarter and past the Red Bull Arena we arrive in the constantly-changing Plagwitz city section, with canals, galleries and lofts. Cosy in green and with impressive villas the music district begins. The Federal Administrative Court is operating since 2002 in the impressive building of the former Reich Court. The way leads through the lively southern suburb past the popular Panometer to one of the well-known sites in Leipzig, the Battle of Nations Monument. The return trip to the city via the Old Market, the German Square and past the Bavarian Train Station leads to the Augustusplatz, where our tour ends. Three significant cultural institutions which decisively determine the image of the city are located here: the New Concert Hall, the University and the Opera.

Excellent

Our guide was very good, and spoke English perfectly. The information she provided was interesting and useful. The coach part of the tour took us to very interesting parts of the city that we otherwise would not have seen and the walking tour provided an excellent orientation to the city centre. Highly recommended.

Very informative 2.5 hour tour

Short walking tour got us thru most of the sights in the old town then the tour bus thru the suburbs was very interesting. Got to see some interesting parts of Leipzig along waterways that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. Got to make it back to those spots after the tour was over. Tour guide was very good switching back and forth between English and German.

Great tour in English and German

Great tour given in both English and German. Though the English translation missed a few details which was disappointing. The tour has a walking (1hr) and bus component (1.5hr). The walking tour could have been extended as not all the important sights could be covered in that short amount of time. Bus was comfortable and clean. I had an e-ticket (PDF) but still had to go and get a printed paper ticket from the tourist information Office to present to the tour guide.
