Karl Heine Kanal is a nice place for walking through the Leipzig City. Very nice looking during the sunny day and in the evening time. You may also get a boat tour and take a boat trip.

We rented some kayaks and went trough the canal. It was a sunny day and the views were perfect. There are some restaurants along the canal, such as Was kost das? (greek restaurant) which is highly recommended

We loved this trip along the winding canals that intersect the city of Leipzig. We rented a 4 person canoe from Franziskaner for about 40 Euros for the day (5 hour trip) and stopped at a lovely restaurant for lunch.
