Karl Heine Kanal

Established in 1856 on the insistence of city Lawyer Carl Heine, Karl Heine Kanal is an artificial water body running across the length of the city. The most prominent feature of the canal is that as many as 15 bridges that connect different streets span it. Each bridge has a different name and the canal itself is a major cultural and historical monument in the city and is strictly under preservation.

Zeitgeschichtliches Forum Leipzig

The Zeitgeschichtliches Forum is a free museum in the center of Leipzig. Its permanent exhibition deals with the GDR, the former state of East Germany. The exhibition presents the history of the state from its formation until the fall of the Berlin Wall with a focus on political oppression as well as everyday life for its citizens. There are also temporary exhibitions that deal with a wide range of historical themes. Not all of the information is presented in English, but visitors can request a translation of the text at the information desk.

Gewandhaus Leipzig

the Gewandhaus is truly a gorgeous concert hall that is a lovely architectural landmark and provides amazing entertainment in the form of concerts. First built in 1781, it was later rebuilt in 1981. Make sure you allow time on your tour of the city to see it lit up at night. The real highlight is the music emanating from inside, for the acoustics are truly top-notch. Kurt Masur used to be synonymous with the building. Its halls also house an impressive organ and are well worth a visit.

Altes Rathaus

You can't miss this wonderful building in the heart of Leipzig, as the Old Town Hall is in the middle of the market place. The first plans for building the Town Hall as it stands now were made in 1555. Although it was badly damaged in World War II, you can once again go for a stroll in the Town Hall's colonnade on account of the restoration work in the 1950s. The hall also houses the fascinating Leipzig City History Museum, where you can learn all about the city's glorious past.

Kulkwitzer See

Located along the outskirts of Leipzig is the magnificent Kulkwitzer See or the “Kulki” as it is more popularly known. The lake is a small water body but due to the superior quality of water and the stunning greenery, it is considered one of the best areas for under water diving and even swimming in all of Europe. The lake is easily accessible by road and train and they conduct regular water courses, have boat rentals, and nice lake-side inn for bed and breakfast etc.

Clara Zetkin Park

Wide-open lawns and an abundance of trees make this park an ideal place to spend quality time and breathe in some fresh air. The many well-maintained trails here provide a sanctuary for joggers who long to escape the busy downtown street and the park's open-air stage and music pavilion provide the perfect setting for fans to enjoy concerts and performances hosted here on a regular basis.
