About Leipzig

Leipzig is a hip city in the Saxony region in the east of Germany. This city is the home of famous composers Richard Wagner and Johann Sebastian Bach and pays tribute to these musical giants with attractions such as the Bach-Museum Leipzig.

Discover some of the city's most interesting architecture in its historic churches. St. Nicholas Church, near Leipzig University, is a Romanesque church with Gothic roots. It was built in 1797 and boasts neoclassical interiors and magnificent pillars. St. Thomas Church is just as impressive and is Bach's final resting place.

Significant art collections are on view at both the Museum of Fine Arts and the Grassi Museum of Applied Arts. Check out the Asisi Panometer to see how a giant painting merges with an equally large gas tank to form a remarkable panoramic attraction.

When hunger strikes, Leipzig has many excellent places to wine and dine. Take a seat at Auerbachs Keller, one of Germany's oldest and most popular restaurants. Ouzeri Was Kost Das is perfect for a romantic dinner, thanks to its cozy setting by the canal.
