  • Visit the market is nice, Nice is really to buy food directly from the producers on a Tuesday or Friday on the market. I think it's better than Christmas market etc.

  • Clearly, many people now say – I am doing advertising for mean home - but far from it! Tuesday and Friday here is a place to simply take out the speed for a short time while strolling. In addition to the usual you will find regional workshops with local and local products. Simply worth seeing!

  • The importance of Leipzig market dates back to 1500 when the Emperor granted the prerogative of Imperial trade fair. The square, where it still takes the fruits market, is a mixture of different styles ranging from old Town Hall buildings to modern Trade-Fair-House.
