Built in the early 20th century to commemorate Napoleon's defeat a century earlier, this colossal building is arguably one of the largest of its kind in Europe. Standing at over 90m, it has a viewing platform (which you can reach after its 500 steps!) and is considered one of the finest examples of Wilhelmine architecture.2 Old Town Hall
Now home to the city museum, this building used to be the centre of the city's public life. Located on the main square, it's one of Germany's largest town halls and is a real gem, thanks to truly extraordinary halls (i.e. the Banqueting Hall) and sculptures.3 Notorious Churches
Leipzig has many beautiful churches, but perhaps it's worth singling out two in particular. St Thomas Church is where J. S. Bach worked as a cantor and St Nicholas Church, whose Monday prayers became the origin of peaceful protests against the DDR in the 1980s.4 Festivals
As a result of its past as a cultural centre, this city holds annual festivals, such as the Bach Festival, the Euro-Scene theatre festival and the Leipzig Book Fair.5 Other sights
This short list is anything but exhaustive. Visit places where artists such as Mendelssohn, Schumann and Goethe spent their time, or close-by Wittenberg, where from Luther started his Protestant Reformation.
