There are many culture and travel tips. Gladly we would like to introduce two sights shortly.
The Völkerschlachtdenkmal is reminiscent of the first big massive battle of the history of humanity. More than half a million soldiers out of almost whole Europe stood face to face on the battle fields of Leipzig in October 1813. The Völkerschlachtdenkmal was build in 1898 to 1913 and on 18th October 1913 dedicated festive. A big jubilee is planned in the year 2013.
Tips for an adventurous evening in Leipzig city are various. The Barfußgäßchen is placed accurate in the city of Leipzig. Close by there are laying historical buildings out of the Renaissance-, Baroque-, and the wilhelminian style with pictorial skews and winding alleys. Also there is to find the ‘Drallewatsch’ a popular vesper time destination. The Barfußgäßchen is a part of the Drallewatsch – here you will find a variety – from the bourgeois restaurant up to the scene pub. At a warm summer evening the many outdoor-seating-facilities offer the perfect opportunity to end a day in Leipzig comfortable.
