Marjon is Dutch and came to Leipzig in August 2013 with her family, because her husband got a job in the area. At the time she still had her own copywriting company, producing Dutch texts for websites, press releases, brochures, etc. She is an avid social media user and a passionate (digital) networker. Marjon has a degree in tourism management, which partially explains why she is always on the look-out for interesting Leipzig events and attractions.

Celebrating the Church, cemetery and beer

in What's on
In case you haven't heard, there's a big Catholic celebration going on in Leipzig. And it's happened literally 100 times before. But if the Church isn't your thing, you can still visit the lovely Südfriedhof Cemetery, which also has a big anniversary this week and special events to go with it. And you can also go and have a beer (or 10) at the Leipzig Beer Festival going on right next door, at the Völkerschlachtdenkmal. https://leipglo.com
