Leipzig city centre (‘Zentrum’ or sometimes ‘innenstadt’) is lively and much of it is pedestrianised. Here you’ll find loads of shopping, restaurants, business offices, and hotels as well as the City Hall, a major University of Leipzig campus and numerous cultural and historical sites (check out the Moritzbastei). There’s also cafes, fast food, international brands, and lots of banks and ATMs for getting your euros. Just north of the Zentrum is the Hauptbahnhof (central train station) with the main tram stop directly in front. There is another major tram stop on the east side of the Zentrum on Augustus-Platz and to the south on Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz.
Leipzig’s Zentrum is actually a very pleasant place to hang out and spend time. It’s clean, safe, historical, a bit touristy and there’s loads to see and do. The images below speak for themselves.
