Leipzig is not called "the new Berlin" in vain. The city is developing rapidly. Many artists move into affordable housing and universities attract students from many different places. Leipzig is diverse and the arts and culture scene is thriving. The surroundings of Leipzig can not be ignored either. There are numerous lakes and beautiful forests. In summer you can just grab a bike and cycle out to a lake with clear water and soak up the sun. A perfect balance between big city and nature. Leipzig has so many different things to offer that it is difficult to summarize in one text. I highly recommend anyone to visit this unique place and experience for yourself what Leipzig is.
Such a wonderful city! I only spent a weekend, and even though I did so much, I feel I could easily spend at least a week here and still have stuff to do. The architecture and history is amazing, and the zoo and parks are just brill. I'm really looking forward to coming back here, especially for the summer sometime.
Beautiful architecture, friendly people, a lot art & culture, great nightlife - truly a vibrant city!
I spent quite a bit of time in Leipzig for work and the more time I spent there the more I really came to love it. Fantastic city, lovely architecture and friendly people.
