Leipzig is the largest town in Saxony and is a major arts and education center. On addition to musicians mentioned in the Thomaskirche post, Goethe studied at the renowned university here, too.
While Leipzig was bombed during world war 2, it was not as heavily damaged as other cities. So there are more pre-war buildings here. The 1st picture is of the old Town Hall along one side of the market square. The 2nd picture is a better look at the market square. The 3rd and 4th pictures are looks at a couple of streets scenes.
Another thing Leipzig is famous for is the "passages" throughout the city. These are covered and enclosed walkways through buildings. There are a couple dozen of them. The most well known is the Mädler Passage which is shown in the 5th picture.
The last picture is another nod to the artistic and musical heritage of the city. This is a display of baroque period musical instruments.Read more
