Full description
Explore the interesting old town of Leipzig on this private walking tour. Learn more about the history of the nearly 1000-year-old trade fair city. Look back at long-lasting traditions that are reflected in the buildings of the city. All German book publishers had an office in Leipzig – for this reason Leipzig is known as the “City of Books”. Many musicians lived and worked here, such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Mendelsohn Bartholdy, and Robert and Clara Schumann. The buildings of the historical city center portray this vibrant mix and provide many interesting corners to discover. See old and new buildings from various periods of style directly next to one another. Discover the most beautiful sights in the city including the Market Square with the old town hall, the New City Hall, and St. Thomas Church with the Bach Monument. Stroll across Augustusplatz, admire the opera house and the Gewandhaus concert hall, and see the Museum Coffe Baum. Visit the former trade fair courtyards that provide character to the city.

Nice private tour

We had a very good private tour! In addition to historical facts, Falk also told us many smaller details and stories. The private tour had the huge advantage that our guide fully responded to our questions and needs, picked us up from the hotel and was also flexible in terms of time - really recommendable!

Unser Guide Falk Hartwig war sehr nett und kompetent. Er war pünktlich und hat uns wunschgemäß an unserem Hotel abgeholt. Die Führung hatte er so geplant, dass auch unser Rollstuhlfahrer gut mitkommen konnte. Ein Teil unserer kleinen Gruppe (4Personen) war vor zwei Jahren schon in Leipzig gewesen, konnte aber durch Herrn Hartwig noch sehr viel Neues erfahren. Seine Kenntnisse insbesondere zum Thema „Leipzig als alte Messestadt“ waren hervorragend Wir werden gerne noch mal mit ihm losgehen um die zweite Hälfte der Altstadt kennenzulernen wenn wir das nächste mal nach Leipzig kommen.
