Leipzig is known for it's passages, and Madler should not be missed. Auerbach Keller and Mephisto are accessed here, as well as many shops. This is definitely worth a visit.

We were searching for a library when we found this. It is a nice place to take a few photos or drink a tea but that's it I think. The arhitecture is nice but not spectacular. We found also to statues with scenes from Faust
