Full description
Explore the interesting old town of Leipzig on this private walking tour. Learn more about the history of the nearly 1000-year-old trade fair city. Look back at long-lasting traditions that are reflected in the buildings of the city. All German book publishers had an office in Leipzig – for this reason Leipzig is known as the “City of Books”. Many musicians lived and worked here, such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Mendelsohn Bartholdy, and Robert and Clara Schumann. The buildings of the historical city center portray this vibrant mix and provide many interesting corners to discover. See old and new buildings from various periods of style directly next to one another. Discover the most beautiful sights in the city including the Market Square with the old town hall, the New City Hall, and St. Thomas Church with the Bach Monument. Stroll across Augustusplatz, admire the opera house and the Gewandhaus concert hall, and see the Museum Coffe Baum. Visit the former trade fair courtyards that provide character to the city.

Our guide Falk Hartwig was very nice and competent. He was on time and picked us up from our hotel as requested. He had planned the tour in such a way that our wheelchair user could also follow along. A part of our small group (4 people) had already been in Leipzig two years ago, but was able to learn a lot of new things from Mr. Hartwig. His knowledge, especially on the subject of "Leipzig as an old trade fair city" was excellent. We would be happy to go with him again to get to know the second half of the old town when we come to Leipzig next time.

Nice private tour

We had a very good private tour! In addition to historical facts, Falk also told us many smaller details and stories. The private tour had the huge advantage that our guide fully responded to our questions and needs, picked us up from the hotel and was also flexible in terms of time - really recommendable!

Very nice top tour guide who knows Leipzig very well

2.5 h private tour for four with a very nice tour guide named Hartwig through downtown Leipzig. He knows the city very well. Also showed us a lot of things that the normal city tours certainly don't show (such as special courtyards, buildings,.....). Knew very well about the history of Leipzig,... Was very spontaneous to stop in so we could warm up with mulled wine. Price performance very very good. Would book the private tour again immediately. Many Thanks
