    We briefly visited Leipzig and headed to the square. It is a large open space with stalls selling fresh fruit and veg and flowers, it is surrounded by iconic buildings, well worth seeing.  more »

    The Leipzig market area has a large and colorful. Theses of all subjects of the market days. Christmas market at the time of the colours even more important.

    I find the market a much more vivid for me boring shopping centre. He gets a particularly nice touch by the old town hall.
