Customer Travel Tip: If you are looking to attend a church service, I advise going to the Elim Church at 25 Hans-Poechler-Straße (near the train station). They were great people and super friendly and English translation was provided immediately.

Liked: The historical sights and the high quality of music heard even from people busking on street corners. A true musical city!

Disliked: Apart from the weather, I felt that the museums were overpriced. There also wasn't as much to see as we had thought but it was great just to explore the place and to meet people.

Customer Travel Tip: Visit all of the museums - very good quality, and mostly free or cheap! Also, Say Cheese Hostel is excellent - one of the best, and excellent value.

Liked: Very good museums about GDR and Stasi history (and free too!) Great shopping too, and very good value. Gorgeous, charming city, lovely little parks, and such easy-going and friendly local people - small-town feel for a big German city - I can't wait to come back.

Disliked: Would have been nice to see museums about Germany's role in the world wars, and how Leipzig experienced it - but these sort of museums are lacking in all of Germany as we all know, and generally difficult to find anywhere. I'm sure this will change in the future, however. Also would have been good to see more about some of the positive elements of GDR life - the museums were very hostile with regards to every aspect of GDR life, while many (but certainly not a majority!!) citizens speak about that time nostalgically. As a tourist it's difficult to understand and appreciate a more nuanced version of the history.
