LEIPZIG | Boomtown of East Germany

Leipzig - stunning!

How do you think when you hear Leipzig?

The Great Battle of 1813 just outside the city? To the former importance of the most important German fair city? To the peaceful revolution in 1989, the beginning of the end of the GDR? The great sons and daughters the city as Schumann, Bach and Mendelssohn? Or maybe to the enormous architectural heritage that the city with more than 15.000 listed buildings for its size Germany's unique? The largest terminal station in Europe with an adjacent historic Old Town?

The city can best be Described by quoting a great German poet: "I come to Leipzig, to the place where you can see the whole world in miniature." For the beauty of the city, they come here in the forum clearly too short. So I want to show you today to keep adding new pictures of my home.

Enjoy the show!

Thanks for the positive comments.

As already stated by others, the city will be prettier every day. Especially when you consider that the architectural heritage of the city was 20 years ago in a terrible state and entire neighborhoods were threatening to collapse. Here the German reunification has really come at the last minute.



It naturally follow every day some new pictures from the city. Enjoy watching!
