Leipzig: where the bells first tolled for East Germany
Leipzig, with its colour, cheer and zest for the new, is a thrill for all the senses. A mecca for books, Bach and trade fairs – and with a university to boot – this dynamic hub in north-west Saxony fairly pulses with life. But Leipzig is also celebrated for its music and is known as the City of Heroes after the peaceful revolution of 1989, when prayers for peace at St. Nicholas' Church thrust it to the centre of world affairs.
