Must Sees in Leipzig
Funky, arty Spinnerei
A former cotton mill industrial site, today this space is occupied by art galleries, art shops, cafes and studios. I have been staying in one of the Meisterzimmer studios in a building occupied by creative types. A edgy part of town where you can feel just as creative and get to grips with the urban cool of the city.
La Moritzbastei è uno dei locali più noti di Lipsia.

From cotton to culture - The cotton mill in #Leipzig is evidence of how history and modernity can work together. Today it serves as an amazing location for artists, designers & creativity. Visit one of the numerous exhibitions before discovering the city! #youth #mustsees
De Spinnerei: history meets art
Art lovers moeten alle ruimtes in de Spinnerei gezien hebben!!! Er zitten meer dan 100 kunstenaars gevestigd in 14 galerieën van de voormalige katoenfabriek. Waaronder de populaire Neo Rauch, van wie Brad Pitt onlangs een schilderij móest hebben. Om je een idee te geven van de oppervlakte: de katoenfabriek in Leipzig was in 1905 de grootste van Europa!
Karl Liebknecht Strasse
Lieve gekke Karli
Verrassende straat in de upcoming wijk Südvorstadt in het zuiden van Leipzig. Bijnaam van deze straat is 'Karli' en het boegbeeld is het vrolijke, kleurrijke pand aan het begin van de straat. De mensen zijn er creatief & openminded. Leuke (soms verborgen) boetiekjes en vergeet niet een drankje te doen bij Gaststätte Kollektiv. Leuke barman... ;)
Panorama Tower – Plate of Art
Op de 29ste verdieping in de 120m hoge wolkenkrabber kun je chique maar supergoedkoop lunchen (€8,90 voor een 3-gangendiner!) en kijk je tegelijkertijd uit over heel Leipzig!!! Na de lunch klim je nog even het dakterras op voor het échte uitzicht!

A day with Lipzi Tours
We met John Ommeln from Lipzi Tours in Leipzig. He organizes guided tours for groups as well as individually adapted tours. You can choose from tours by bike or walk. We walked around in the western parts of the city, in the areas Plagwitz and Lindenau. It was incredibly beautiful! John really knows everything about Leipzig. And we learned a lot. Such as the fascinating history of the city, today's music scene and food culture. Speaking of food culture, veganism have become very popular here. Exciting!
Did you know that Leipzig was previously known for its fairs? The fairs meant that people from other parts of the world came to the city, which was unusually during communism time. It has affected Leipzig a lot and has led to that the people there are more open today. The city was, because of this, not as closed to the outside world.
We got to see several beautiful parks during the long walk. We are very fond of all the green surroundings mixed with the beautiful and magnificent houses and graffiti. In Leipzig nature meets the urban.
Food & art
Leipzig is a stunningly beautiful city and yesterday we got to see lots of it. Among other things, we went on a guided tour called eat-the-world.com in the area Suedvorstadt. We walked around the area for several hours and visited various places with food theme. Including a coffee roastery, an ice cream parlor and a restaurant. Eat-the-world.com wants every single tour to be a bit of a surprise, so therefore we do not disclose everything about the sites. But it was both good and interesting and the guide was awesome! During the tour we also got to see several beautiful and cultural places in Leipzig.
Afterwards we went straight out to Spinnerei for another guided tour. Spinnerei is located just outside the city center and is a former spinning mill which is now a huge part of the art scene in Leipzig and widely known in art circles. Here you will find both exhibition halls, galleries, studios, where artists work and independent cinema. Before we went back into town we had time for a beer in their biergarden. Cosy!
