Wagner's cradle

You may not hear about Leipzig every day, but if you visit Germany and you don’t give this city a try, you miss a bit of the country’s soul. Wagner’s cradle and Bach’s stage for 27 years, Leipzig still loves its music, and above all, it loves its cultural treasures. Check out Mädler Mall and Auerbachs Keller even if you are not a fan of Goethe’s Faust. Don’t miss Nikolaikirche and the stunning view from nearby Universität Leipzig Turm.

Sublime urban park

Sublime urban park Editors' Note

Volkspark Kleinzschocher is an urban park that has been called ‘the jewel of West Leipzig’. An expansive public park, it’s home to ancient trees, biking trails, quiet spots with benches, special play areas for kids and an outdoor swimming pool.

Volkspark Kleinzschocher is located along the White Elster river in the southwest of Leipzig. This vast park includes areas of different character, including designed and well-maintained spots in the north, and beautiful forested parts in the south-east great for walking and cycling. On the northern edge is an Austrian monument for the fallen heroes in the Battle of the Nations in 1813. In the north you’ll find an outdoor swimming pool with a fun playground to the west. A silver maple lined alley leads to a peaceful long grass meadow. The park is dotted with colorful flowerbeds, open spaces, rare species of trees, and paths for walking and cycling. This sublime slice of nature in the city is a great place to walk and relax.
