Overview
The passageways of Leipzig were the city's first ever shopping center. Running between the merchants' houses, these alleyways defined the atmosphere of the old town. Here on market days, as Goethe put it, you could see the whole world in a nutshell!
What to Expect
Discover over 800 years of the history of Leipzig on this tour of the compact old town. The mercantile houses and passageways are as typical of the city's trading heritage as the traditional Saxon coffeehouses. The back courtyards and alleys round the market were the city's first "shopping center."

Leipzig shows the whole world in a nutshell, as the famous poet Goethe put it. The passageways, constructed with the cloth-merchants' houses, were perfect for horse drawn carriages, which could pass through the town without having to turn. On your walk you will be shown large and small, old and new, well-known and hardly-used alleyways and back streets. New buildings, such as the Marktgalerie and the Brühl-Höfe, are continuing this architectural tradition. Don't miss the opportunity to get a taste of Leipzig's particular flair, on this informative tour.
