Full description
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.

Although we were a little late and the bus had already started, we were of course still taken away. Everything was explained very well by the female guide and life in the GDR period was also "fun". It was all very entertaining and I can only recommend it with a clear conscience.

The trip did what I hoped: gave me an oveview of the city.

It was fine once it started. Being winter, the number of departures was reduced and I waited for it to start longer than my patience lasted. But I suppose that's inevitable as they can't afford buses going round empty. They need to install the recordings in other languages soon. My German wasn't really good enough to get the best from the commentary.

Die Fahrt durch Leipzig war sehr informativ und kurzweilig. Unser Guide Andreas führte uns im Doppeldecker-Bus gekonnt durch die Stadt. Seine authentische Art ist mit ausschalggebend, dass neben dem Inhalt auch mit viel Humor und Herzblut der Funke übersprang. Wir haben viel gesehen und konnten so alles Wichtige von Leipzig in aller Kürze wahrnehmen. Als Einstieg in den Städtetrip Gold wert.
