Madler Passage, Leipzig

4.3
#8 of 33 in Sightseeing in Leipzig
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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!!!
