Madler Passage, Leipzig

4.3
#11 of 93 in Things to do in Leipzig
A famous shopping arcade with origins dating back to the 16th century, Madler Passage originated in 1525 as a simple wine bar called Auerbach's Cellar. Expanded in the early 20th century, the passage grew to include the surrounding buildings--and a modern promenade providing numerous shopping opportunities was born. With more than 40 small specialty shops and restaurants, the passage is an excellent place to find unique gifts, enjoy a meal, or simply watch people go by.

    Not for us when on holiday. We have seen much better historic arcades. Plenty of expensive outlets where no one seems to be buying anything.  more »

    Who didn't make it to Milan, you can visit a good German counterpart with enough restaurants and interesting shops.

  • One of my all-time favorite spaces in Leipzig, grand and beautiful interior architecture, the shops are not even relevant in the space, so much history and a great stop for a posh coffee & torte!
  • A shopping passage with expensive boutiques. Boring.
  • I love this place!
  • Too much smoking customers inside! Beautiful place, but awful environment for families with kids. Get rid of smokers immediately!
  • Quite a Passage!!!
