If you're planning to visit Leipzig, you must pay a visit to the Market Square. Cultural events with no admission fee take place here quite often - I myself was lucky enough to have been able to attend one (,,Bachfest", to be precise) and I had a wonderful time. Furthermore, there are plenty of architectural gems, as well as great stores (such as the 5-storey department store Breuninger).

It's a huge square in the city centre and there you can see beautiful facades or head turn to take the underground from here.

Beautiful plaza in front of the old town hall. Great place to gather, take a picture and also grab a drink

One will undoubtedly pass through here many times during the course of a stay in Leipzig. Just awesome! But be sure to pass through at different times of the day.

Hmmm... the length of visit question... pass through, or hang out for an afternoon/evening.

This square is worth visiting due to whats placed around it and not for the square itself. Its a wide open space with nothing in its middle and needs a focal point.
There are many walkways leading off of it housing cafes, restaurants and many shops. The best part of the square for me is the very German lloking buildings around its perimetre.

A lovely square in the centre of town with the typical tourist shops, places to eat and drink etc. Can probably get lively at times.

Good location where you can find fresh vegetables and other foods, flowers and other stuff. Also the shopping streets are all around and the mall.

The biggest place of the city with museum, shops, restaurant, all is new because of the war, and it is really beautiful.

We traveled to Leipzig so that we could see the city, attend concerts and visit the annual Christkindlmarkt We were not disappointed. The market stretched far beyond the main market square through a number of side streets and into a large space near the opera hall. The variety of stalls with things to buy and food to eat were wonderful. People were friendly and seemed to really enjoy the festive atmosphere throughout the market. This is a place and event I would enjoy returning to in the future.
