  • mandatory Not a must, as the buildings are more beautiful when seen from downstairs, but the visit is not bad. 
  • Beautiful square. Unusual ancient buildings around. During the Christmas holidays and came to the opening of the Christmas fair on the square-great! Colorful! Tasty! Remembered.

  • The market show the old and new face of Leipzig City in Leipzig with the old town hall, the old and new houses surrounding it. Which total probably is one of the most beautiful in Germany. Who hasn't in his itinerary, which can not really say that he was in Leipzig, has missed something.

  • 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
