Proletariat uprisingLeipzig was completely demolished during World War II and after suffered 40 years of neglect in the hands of the communists leaving the city a dreary wasteland. In 1989 the people of Leipzig started the peaceful revolution against the communist oppression in East Germany. They gathered outside St Nicholas church to pray and light candles for peace and social freedoms. The city is nicknamed 'The City of Heroes' for its leading role in the reunification of Germany.
City of MusicLeipzig is a mecca for music lovers. It was the hometown of Johann Sebastian Bach and his tomb lies in St Thomas church where he was pipe organist and choirmaster for many years. Wagner was also born here and Mendelssohn established the first German music conservatory here in 1843. Select a cosy B&B from Bed and Breakfast Leipzig and discover the special relationship the city has with music.

These buildings also contain impressive shopping arcades, some of which retain their old world charm and others showcase fabulous examples of modern art. Stay in a Bed and Breakfast Leipzig and stroll around the various arcades and galleries or pick up a souvenir in the arcade under the Old Town Hall.
