In 1,5h Stunden kann man natürlich nicht die ganze Geschichte der Stadt Leipzig zeigen und erläutern. Die Auszüge + dem gesehenen Objekten der Stadt waren gut übermittelt mit der Prise - Leute kommt wieder es gibt noch so viel mehr zu sehen und zu erzählen. Der Stadtrundgang ist sehr zu empfehlen.

Trotz Regenwetters super Stadtführung!!

Unser Stadtführer hat uns viele Informationen und tolle Stellen in Leipzig gezeigt. Durch seine frühere Tätigkeit in der Denkmalpflege hat er uns auch viele stadtgeschichtliche Details erläutert, die wir sonst wahrscheinlich nicht erhalten hätten. Die 1, 5 Std. vergingen sehr schnell und wir konnten uns anschließend sehr gut in Leipzig orientieren. Am nächsten Tag haben wir einige Stellen ganz bewusst noch einmal angesteuert, um sie genauer zu betrachten. Wir waren rundum zufrieden!!
