The Markt, the main market square, is the most central point in Leipzig. It is the so-called Herz von Leipzig, the "heart of the city". Dominated by the splendid Renaissance façade of the famous Altes Rathaus, the face of the Markt has changed frequently over the centuries and was heavily damaged during the Second World War. Visitors can pass a pleasant moment in one of the many cafes and restaurants nearby. Large open-air events, concerts and festivals often take place here during the summer.
The Mädler Passage occupies the coveted purple street in the Leipzig City version of Monopoly and this is reflected in the shops and cafes that line the passage. It's a good place to go shopping if you are looking for designer brands or high-end jewelry. Even if you are not interested in shopping, it's worth walking through to take a look at the architecture, the glass roof and the statues of characters from Gothe's Faust. Leipzig's most famous restaurant, the Auerbachs Keller, is located along this street and there is also a cabaret club in the passage.
