With my tour 'Stay central!', I invite you to become part of a 2 hour experience, and discover the historic city centre of Saxony's largest city – always in dialogue with contemporary architecture.

Enjoy the charm and richness of Leipzig's heritage and its meaningful history, its daring new constructions such as the Museum of Fine Arts, the City Tunnel or the new catholic church Saint Trinitatis. Depending on each walk's itinery, we will come across various sites of the former Fair Trade Palaces and wander through some of the many arcades; hear about Woyzeck's execution and the inspiration this gave to Georg Büchner; enjoy the various sites and stories related to the world-famous Gewandhaus, the pride of the music world; discover the central university campus and its stunning new architecture, hear about Goethe and the current literary movements; look at the Bach statue and feel the presence of his music at Saint Thomas Church. And of course, you will hear about the Peaceful Revolution of 1989, and get the tools to ponder over the value of freedom and self-determination.
Stay central, and get a glimpse of why so many people want to live in Germany's fastest growing city.
