Have been there just for the Christmas Market Events and it really has an atmosphere. Lots of market booths with great foods and Christmas stuff. Lots of aroma and fine smells. Enjoy it all over the hot-wine wrapped in a blanket in one of the nearby restaurant´s outside terrrace...

The street entertainment and the total atmosphere of this city square is fantastic. Surrounded by restaurants everywhere that you cannot miss by having something seating on the street under the shade of sun umbrellas

Leipzig is a beautiful town a well balance mixture of new and old buildings, the Christmas market is huge as its spreads throughout the old part of the town but centreing on the Market Square, there are dozens of food and drinks stores apart from the typical Christmas goods, the ambiance is fantastic and gives a huge sense of security,...

If you like shopping local stuff, that's a good place to go and buy. It was prepared for Christmas, so you can imagine..... The surrounding attractions justify going there nevertheless.

Like many others - a lovely fresh fruit and veggies market with lots of food trucks, selling fish and pastries and meat and sandwiches. The entire area surrounding is brand name stores, so it's a good shopping area, especially in a pleasant day.

I would not say this is much of an attraction, but it you will find some "old world" charm, a few interesting shops and many street vendors. i actually passed on eating in restaurants and bought food from vendors (very reasonable) and would eat and listen to the entrainment each night I was in this city.

Everyone LOVES an older URBAN market square to walk, shop, eat, drink, hang out and this is no exception to that emotion. Lots to do and see in this area you will walk a lot so bring comfortable boots or walking shoes...... the Doctor hit me with a helpful vote!

On a lovely sunny day we wandered round the market. Stopped for a beer and something to eat and generally chilled. Would not recommend in the rain.
