Culture Trip

Leipzig is the most livable city in Germany. Since the Medieval period, Leipzig has been a major European center for learning and culture in the fields of music and publishing. The city played a significant role in the unification of Germany after the Soviet era, and today Leipzig is as vibrant and as prosperous as most large European cities.


Mintastique is the first and best cupcake café in Leipzig. The cupcakes are made daily and are absolutely fresh and made from scratch. The café has a stylish atmosphere, charming and glamorous in its own way. Equally delicious as the cupcakes are Mintastique’s coffees and tea specialties. They also offer vegan, gluten-free and organic ice cream. Their cupcake decorating sets are to die for, and don’t be surprised if you return to the cafe for more during your stay at Leipzig.

Dean & David

Good coffee on its own is yummy, but what’s even better is a combination of good coffee and fresh, good quality food, and you will find this combination at Dean & David. David, the owner, created the menu by gathering ideas from his trips. The idea for the fresh salads came to him during his New York trip, the juices and smoothies came from a trip to Australia, the spices from Southeast Asia. The diversity of meals and tastes makes the place an even more unique place and one worth stopping by while in Leipzig.
