We saw the Market Square during the Christmas market season so we were unable to see the beautiful buildings that surrounded the square. Definitely will go back to see the square in it's more natural state.

Having visited Nurnberg, Erlangen and Hersbruck Christmas markets, I have to rate Leipzig as my favorite. The stalls were unique (there wasn't redundancy), and they weren't extremely crowded. I had a wonderful time!

This is one of the plainer, less interesting markt Squares we have seen! Some of the buildings overlooking the square are nice, but I wouldn't consider it a must-see while in Leipzig.

Went to the market in the morning at 10.30 nothing there, went later at 15.00 hut's up and a stage nothing open though. Had something to eat at a restaurant in the square which was nice. Otherwise a waste of time.

It was a very nice place to hang out, with clothes and tourist shops, and they were mostly in old buildings. They had a farmer's market on Friday.
