  • 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.
