We took the train out of town to visit LutherLand sites in Eisleben, and had a chance to explore why it is a "thing to do." So many shops--we visited the local Aldi and found the best pretzel for 29 cents! The curry wurst was so good from the Thuringer Grill too! Check it out!

I was pleasantly surprised, there were just enough stores open so that I had a choice of places to eat. I had to come back... More

Even you are not arriving or departing from Leipzig by train, it is well worth the visit anyway. This is one of the largest train stations in Europe but also one of the most beautiful. The station is centrally located and is within walking distance from the old town square. We visited during Christmas time and it was festively decorated... More

If you are interested in railways this is a place to see. A huge building so much happening and trains leaving to interesting destinations. Several possibilities to eat as well.

This must be one of the prettiest train stations I've seen, it looks like a museum. Usually crowded, not messy. On the inside, there's a shopping center (promenade), on which some stores open on Sundays. Outside is to try to move along quickly. Groups of "not so friendly" people stand outside, asking for money, smoking and making noise. It is... More
