Visitors’ videos about Leipzig


I was sitting in my couch, tired, thinking about what to write next, when I became curious to find out what visitors have been expressing about Leipzig on YouTube. Here are the highlights of my Tube crawl, as relaxation – for myself and our lovely readers – after a busy week…

1. “Hop on a one-hour train ride south of Berlin, and you’ll find yourself in the city that was most recently ranked the most livable in Germany… there are impressive things to see everywhere.” – Backpacker Survival Guide

2. “If you haven’t visited Leipzig in a long time, you probably won’t recognize the amazing city it’s become. Dubbed ‘the city of music’ Leipzig is no longer a dark and drab Eastern Bloc city. Leipzig is vibrant in every way, from the cafes and galleries to the beautiful parks and the clubs that keep you dancing until 4AM.” – Jonathan Menzies

3. “A visit by an American couple to the East German city of Leipzig, still under communist rule and recovering from war damage. Then they took a plane to freedom: Switzerland.” – Michael Rogge

4. “In the summer I visited the zoo in Leipzig and filmed extensively there. Lions, dragons and meerkats – there is a lot to see.” – Bidone
