Little Paris
Leipzig is not only world-famous for its long tradition of trade fairs, but also for its vibrant music and cultural scenes. A network of passageways intersects the city's center. Some belong to well-preserved historical buildings. Others have been newly created to complement modern structures erected only a few years ago. This area is packed with tourist attractions that are easily explored on foot. Look for numerous stylish boutiques, top department stores, medieval churches, art galleries, opera houses, and museums during your vacation in the city. In the 18th century, Leipzig became a center for literature and learning, acquiring the nickname Little Paris. Though it is now an undisputed regional center of industry, transportation, and business, Leipzig remains a city of culture and art. It proudly boasts one of the finest and oldest boys' choirs in the world. Plan your trip to Leipzig and other Germany destinations using our handy Germany online trip itinerary maker.
