Leipzig's city centre combines a remarkable historical building stock with shopping and entertainment facilities that meet the highest expectations. The history-charged, magnificently restored old town holds attractions such as the Old City Hall - one of the largest preserved Renaissance buildings of its kind in Germany - or the late baroque St. Nicholas Church - in 1989 the starting point of the Peaceful Revolution.
