Germany - Saxony


A Karen Brown Recommendation
The largest city in the region of Saxony, Leipzig draws a business trade with its international trade fair that it has hosted for centuries. The cultural traveler will also be attracted to the city as it was home to has ties to Bach, Goethe, Mendelssohn, Schumann and others. The town's square is at the heart of town and from here visitors to the city will want to include in their visit the University, Altes (which houses a museum of the city's history) and Neues Rathauses; Bach Museum and Thomaskirche. Thomaskirche is the the church where Johann Sebastian Bach based from 1723 until his death in 1723. During this time he played the organ; wrote the St. Mathew Passion and other works. Besides memorials to Bach and his contemporaries, there's a small exhibition of old instruments inside. Organ concerts are given frequently on Sunday evenings. Music enthusiasts might also want to visit the Schumann House where Robert and Clara began their married life together or the Mendelssohn House where felix lived and is now buried. When it is time to rest your legs, you might want to visit the second oldest restaurant in Leipzig, Auerbachs Keller. This was also frequented by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and was featured in his play Faust I. (Mädler-Passage, Grimmaische Straße 2 - 4, 04109 Leipzig, Telephone: (49) 341.21.61.00.) Leipzig is also home to Europe's largest war monmument the Volkerschlachtdenkal (Battle of the Nations). It was built as a memorial to the successful battle against Napoleonic troops. Also very significant, in World War II, the massive demonstrations held here against the East German communist regime are believed to be responsible for the movement that led to its fall.
