Many people will tell you that Berlin is not Germany and they are correct in saying so. The capital has a completely different lifestyle and way of living than any other German city, perhaps largely due to its vast multiculturalism. So, after four years living here, I thought it was high time I discovered more of what ‘real Germany’ looks like.
Two weeks ago I travelled to Leipzig for the day, a former East German city conveniently located just 1 hour 15 minutes from Berlin by train. The main intention was to visit the zoo (post coming soon), but with a few hours to spare, a tour of the city was in order.
Leipzig is a compact city and easy to walk around quickly to get an impression of the city. I didn’t enter any of the fabulous museums they have there, but I did manage to get some nice snaps of the streets.
One place I did take the time to enter was St. Thomas Church most famous as the place where Johann Sebastian Bach worked as a Kapellmeister, and as the current location of his remains.
I couldn’t help but add a picture of these adorable dogs.
I also travelled to Cologne last year for the Christmas markets. Check out my pictures here!

Great page have never been to Leipzig before. Pictures look great as well!
It looks absolutely lovely, I am starting to learn German again before I visit so I will definitely make sure I bear this in mind! How exciting xx
That is cool you are learning German. I hope you have better luck than me!
Can’t wait to see it for myself now!
You will really enjoy it!
