Worth a visit if you are in the town. The place is nice, and they offer a wide range of beers. With the food, even if the choice is more limited, is good and with generous rations.

Food is really good if you are a bit patient .) In particular the cheeseburger that comes with real fries (not the awful frozen ones you got every where now) but not only, all the other food is simple but tasty, fresh and good :) and the garden is very pleasant in summertime

Sitting in a beatiful beer garden with apple trees around, drinking cold beers or even really good whisky and eating some home made very good burgers: Substanz is for me always a place to go during summer months!!

You need to make sure that you visit this in the Biergarten season (Mai to October, aprox). You'll enjoy a really nice atmosphere, one of the best burgers of Leipzig and a really nice selection of tab beers. My favourite place for an evening.

We went for a drink after dinner and Substanz was perfect. Relaxed atmosphere and the decor is rustic yet stylish. They have an acceptable range of beverages, which includes selections of both whiskey (speyside, islay, highland etc.) and wine. NOTICE: Smoking was allowed, but they had an none-smoking area.

Living in Leipzig, the "Substanz" is my No. 1 place to enjoy a great evening - during the summer I am there 2 to 3 times a week.. Although it might look a little dubious from the outside, this location has the most beautiful, alomst Indonesian-looking Biergarten in town which is open from April to September. During the winter months,... More

If you search a nice spot to enjoy beer, burgers and the upcoming summer evenings you will find it at Substanz-Leipzig. Bavarian (Augustiner) or Belgian beer (Leffe) from keg combined with one of the tasty burgers (also veggie) and the nice atmosphere of the green cosy backyard make you forget the everyday life for a while. Substanz is also the... More

Located at Reudnitz area and a 20-mins walk from the city centre, it's usually filled with locals and students living around the area (like me!). Their burgers are a must-have though the choice is pretty limited. There's a good variety of beer and they also served beer with syrup (raspberry, cherry, can't remember the rest). But sometimes, service can be... More
