Cultural city with charisma

Leipzig Bach memorial, copyright LTS A. Kühne
Leipzig has been an important influence in European commercial and intellectual life for centuries, and its sights are all part of the Leipzig experience. Historical shopping arcades, lovingly restored, are typical of the architecture in the city centre. There are great shops, a vibrant cultural scene and lively bars that stay open very late, all within a relatively small area.
