  • The christmas markets were very good. Food excellent and people very friendly. The trams are on time and very clean. Good place to visit. 
  • Leipzig is a vast, abwechslungsloser Christmas market in December in the Centre. Means, who wants to buy this collection of things not really not needed. And the range of fried and sweet takes away sales the surrounding fast-food chains. positive? Saxony like Thuringian bratwurst. Must you eat by themselves first? Everywhere, the Afterworks meet mulled wine in big hordes. Even Ferris wheels and carrousel! Lack of beer tents and roller coaster! Yet! The quiet time! Advent fun!

  • 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
