    The name of the Leipziger Barfußgäßchen goes back to the Franciscan order founded in the 13th century by Francis of Assisi (Umbria, Italy). The Franciscans were not least because of their social position (as they were also known as mendicant orders) monks who wore no shoes and therefore went through life barefoot.
    The Barfußgäßchen Leipzig is today a magnet for tourists. There is one bar after the other, one inn after the other. The Barfußgäßchen Leipzig is divided into a purely pedestrian zone and a passable area. Within the narrow pedestrian zone (starting from the Leipziger Markt on the corner of the König-Albert-Haus) there is tourist activity day and night. You can sit outside here all year round, drink your beer or wine and enjoy plenty of food.

    Barfußgässchen was founded in 1996 by two dozen Leipzig innkeepers and is called Drallewatsch. Drallewatsch is a native Saxon word and means "to experience something" and "to stroll from bar to bar".

    In the oldest part of the city, you also get an impression of how densely the city center used to be. Historical buildings from the Renaissance, Baroque and Wilhelminian periods stand close together. Here in Barfußgasse, Fleischergasse and Klostergasse you will find many restaurants with a wide variety of offers - from home-style restaurants to trendy bars.

    Here pubs and restaurants are lined up. You can sit outside at any time of the year - in the rain under the umbrella and in winter under the patio heater ....
