Our Highlights of Leipzig

By Ingridd @cosytraveler

Leipzig was on the program of our summer trip of 2014, but when Ingrid fell ill in the Czech Republic, we had to postpone our visit to this German town. Finally, we decided to go there during the Christmas vacation.

Ingrid and I felt immediately at home in Leipzig, probably because it’s a city that has a lot to offer for everybody: culture, gastronomy, history, nature, entertainment, …

Thomaskirche

We started our visit in the late-Gothic church, dedicated to St. Thomas. Built in the 15th century, this was the place where Bach worked as a choirmaster in the 17th century. A statue of the man himself stands in front of the church.

Then, we went for a stroll in the center of the city:
