Dan went for a hike.
October 6, 2020
Short trip to Saxony ...... but this time not to my hometown Dresden, but to beautiful Leipzig.We have quarters in a hotel near the main train station, which we want to explore later.This afternoon it was the turn of the old town. Here we looked at some sights. The market square with the old town hall, the Thomas and Nikolaikirche, of course.Then we went to the Schwanenteich, past the opera, to Augustusplatz. The university, the city skyscraper with the MDR and the world-famous Gewandhaus border the square.Finally we walked past the Moritz Bastion, to Burgplatz and the new town hall.I also really liked the shopping arcades, which have been well integrated into the old town.Worth seeing here is the Mädler-Passage with the well-known “Auerbachs Keller”, it reminded me a little of Milan or Naples.Here you can also watch the streams of people passing by while having a hot coffee.
