Leipzig, the largest city in the German state of Saxony, has nicknames like “City of Heroes” and “New Berlin”, so it’s obviously awesome. With all of its history, museums and vibrant, unique neighbourhoods, words like “youthful” and “energetic” don’t begin to describe it.
The best way to really see it all is to rent a car in Leipzig, so what are you waiting for? Get some wheels and get moving.
With your car rental in Leipzig, you don’t have to cruise far to find the city’s famous churches. Park it in Zentrum and take to the streets to find St. Thomas Church, where Bach worked as kapellmeister (aka the person in charge of the music). Equally famous is St. Nicholas Church, the site of the Monday Demonstrations against communist rule in 1989.
Book Leipzig car hire and head east to Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei (on second thought, better type it in rather than try to pronounce it)! This former cotton mill is now a thriving artists’ community—if you can’t find a great souvenir here, well then, we don’t know where you can.
It’s time to Leipzig-and-zag your way out of town and on to Germany’s capital, 190km north. Make a beeline for Museum Island, which has five of them, to be exact. Don’t miss the world-famous bust of Nefertiti at the Neues Museum. The 3000-year-old pharaoh’s wife hasn’t aged a bit.
Hungry? Noshing on a smoked bockwurst or two won’t be the “wurst” thing that ever happened to you, especially when you wash it down with a crisp bock lager. Just make sure you’ve got your Berlin accommodation lined up so you can take a quick nap.
