Full description
Explore the interesting old town of Leipzig on this private walking tour. Learn more about the history of the nearly 1000-year-old trade fair city. Look back at long-lasting traditions that are reflected in the buildings of the city.

All German book publishers had an office in Leipzig – for this reason Leipzig is known as the “City of Books”. Many musicians lived and worked here, such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Mendelsohn Bartholdy, and Robert and Clara Schumann.

The buildings of the historical city center portray this vibrant mix and provide many interesting corners to discover. See old and new buildings from various periods of style directly next to one another.

Discover the most beautiful sights in the city including the Market Square with the old town hall, the New City Hall, and St. Thomas Church with the Bach Monument. Stroll across Augustusplatz, admire the opera house and the Gewandhaus concert hall, and see the Museum Coffe Baum. Visit the former trade fair courtyards that provide character to the city.
