About LeipzigIf you're looking for a city break that offers a bit of everything, then look no further than Leipzig. Located just an hour south of Berlin, this compact city is packed with culture, music, architecture, street markets and canals. Take a stroll around Augustusplatz, the heart of the city, and explore the Baroque style buildings, cobblestone lanes, wide pedestrianised zones, courtyards and passages. Delve into Leipzig's musical heritage with a visit to the Bach Museum, St Thomas Church or the Mendelssohn House. Art lovers will be in their element at the Spinnerei, a former cotton mill now home to a thriving artist community with galleries and workshops. Follow Leipzig's map of canals from the inner city harbour to either Lake Cospuden or Leipzig New Lakeland recreation area. When night falls, you'll be spoilt for choice with 1400 bars and restaurants to choose from, including 400 with alfresco seating. And if you visit in winter, you'll be able to experience the festive atmosphere of the Leipzig Christmas Market, with over 260 gift-laden stalls. Best of all, it's just over two hours flight time from Dublin, making Leipzig the perfect destination for short breaks and long weekends.
