  • I am every day in the city centre. On market days cavort countless people on and around the market. The offers on the market are very diverse. Flowers over bread to organic products to fish and appetizers. What is for all. Throughout the year there are various theme markets, including Easter market, Christmas market or at concerts (such as classic open). Around the market there are many restaurants and shops.

  • The marketplace is also a locality, you must see when visiting Leipzig...! The old town hall, but also the surrounding old buildings that surround him, give him the certain flair...!

  • mandatory Not a must, as the buildings are more beautiful when seen from downstairs, but the visit is not bad.  more »

  • The staff of market 1 was very helpful, the location very interesting gestaltet-hail a "so-called" DJ named Daniel could not convince music us with his incompetent "mixing Masch". They felt rather, you want the visitors by "Cat whining" verkraulen. Very bad for the location
