Leipzig is known as a trading city, so the main square of the city must be the market square. Where trade was - there public life was. It is logical that the court was made the same here. Executions also were carried out at this...More

The Market Square is a good place to visit to see the old buildings of Leipzig. The old Town Hall is particularly interesting and there are many other fine old buildings around three sides of the square

We saw the Market Square during the Christmas market season so we were unable to see the beautiful buildings that surrounded the square. Definitely will go back to see the square in it's more natural state.
