Leipzig's Spirit

Outside the centre, beyond the »inner city ring road«, to the north, east, south and west of the city of Leipzig, you can find exciting experiments and hidden highlights in the midst of wasteland and industrial monuments; in Gründerzeit glory, concrete tower blocks, and 21st century design.

The special attitude towards life in Leipzig is difficult to describe. We'll make it simple: in 60 pictures and with 146 specific tips from off the beaten track. In Leipzig's different districts, speciality restaurants, beautiful parks, concert halls, favourite shops, art galleries and independent theatres are hidden away; unless you know where to look.
