Germany is home to a number of beautiful cities and towns, but Leipzig’s past gives it a unique flare that stands out from the rest. For many years this quaint university city has served as a German epicenter of culture, history, invention, and tradition. Even if you’re short on time, there are a number of things here that are readily available to make your day in Leipzig one you won’t soon forget.

Morning eats

Rise and shine! Your adventure in Leipzig cannot start without a meal to fuel your day of exploring. For a breakfast on the go, Backwerk or Lukas Bäker are highly recommended. At these cafes, you can get a quick breakfast and coffee for under €8. Both have locations in the train station if you are starting from there. If you have time and a sit down breakfast is more your style, head to ALEX Leipzig for great bagels and a traditional German Breakfast spread.
