This is at Tapetenwerk in Leipzig Lindenthal an old factory building that has been renovated and turned into office and work space for young creatives and entrepreneurs.

Leipzig is probably the most up and coming city in Germany right now. Most of my close friends live in Leipzig and I have literally spent half of my life there. That´s why I feel so connected to the city. In order to skip the tourist traps and experience city and country side like a local I put together a list of top 10 things to do and see in Leipzig:

1. Explore Leipzig New Lakeland (check out my vlog)

2. Chill and mingle with locals at the “Sachsenbrücke” in summertime

3. Dance your feet off at one of the various festivals in the area of Leipzig

(for instance: Th!nk?, Pow Wow, Melt, Highfield, Zilp Zalp, Summer Inspiration)

This is a picture of the Th!nk? festival in Leipzig at Lake Cospuden.

4. Party in one of the oldest clubs in Germany: Distillery

5. Try one of the specialities of Leipzig: Leipziger Lerche and Gosebeer

This is one of the specialities of Leipzig: Leipziger Lerche

6. Visit one of the various Galleries in Tapetenwerk, Werk 2, Alte Spinnerei, Westwerk…

7. Relax at Clara-Zetkin-Park

This is Clara-Zetkin-Park, which is the green lung of Leipzig with its trendy “Sachsenbrücke” (a meeting point) is located in that neighbourhood as well. If you enjoy chilling, relaxing, singing and mingling with “Leipziger” – this is the perfect spot for you.

8. Hang out for one evening in Karl-Heine-Strasse

9. Hang out for one evening at Karli (Karl-Liebknecht-Street)

10. Go on a boat or kayak tour and explore the waterways and canals of Leipzig
