The composers Mendelssohn and Wagner both are connected to the city, although it is Bach who has had the biggest impact on Leipzig, having served as cantor in the famous Thomaskirche. After the end of the Cold War, Leipzig has staged an amazing turnaround to become one of Germany’s most popular tourism destinations.
Today, Leipzig is a lively, open and multi-faceted city, with an abundance of attractions on offer. As having been a trade centre for centuries, the shopping opportunities are fantastic, while the opera house, the museums and art institutions provide activities galore for those with a cultural taste. As being an university town, the nightlife is of course buzzing too, especially in the Drallewatsch pub area, which is a must see for incoming party animals.
