  • Pub night in Leipzig

    by NienkeT Online Now May 23, 2016 at 11:53 PM


    In the end of July we are in Poland and Germany with an orchestra consisting of 65 people.
    On the last Saturday we would like to have a little party. We stay in a family hostel so in the hostel it's not possible.
    I was wondering if anyone of you maybe knows a nice pub (owner) where we can make a nice deal. The pub for example charges us an amount of money per person and we can have a party there. Our place is near Goerdelerring.

    Tips are more than welcome!

    Best regards,

    Museum der bildenden Künste

    by agathi Online Now Aug 1, 2015 at 1:06 AM

    Hallo. Does anybody know how big the painting museum of Leipzig is? The only thing I've managed to figure out is that it has 3 floors and that the upper one covers the modern part of art. But I wish to calculate the time I will spend there and I need a floor plan (which is impossible to be found) or the number of works exhibited or at least the number of the rooms. I've tried to contact the museum by e-mail but haven't got an answer. Any help? Thank you.

  • Eating alone and staying at Steigenberger

    by gymflip17 Online Now Dec 1, 2014 at 8:17 AM

    Good evening - I am dining alone this evening and was wondering if there is any place I should make a point of eating/enjoying a good German beer at other than my hotel restaurant options. I would like to keep it nearby as I'm not familiar with the area and on the cheap as I am in Germany for a week. Any help is much appreciated.

    Roadtrip: Gräfenhainichen (Ferropolis) -> Leipzig, looking for special places

    by daankuipers Online Now May 13, 2014 at 9:01 AM

    Hi Leipzig-lovers,

    I'm a producer for the Dutch travel show 3 op Reis and I'm looking for a crazy/cool/bizarre/special/wonderful restaurant/club/shop/sight/etc. just outside of Leipzig.

    The crew and our presenter will drive from Gräfenhainichen (Ferropolis) to Leipzig, and we're looking for a place where we can shoot some cool footage for our show. Some unseen stuff, something that's worth showing our viewers.

    Thank you for any help you can provide!

    I work for a Dutch travel show, and very soon we'll be visiting Leipzig. I am looking for the hidden treasures that Leipzig has to offer. In every category: nightlife, art/culture, one of a kind restaurants/bars, parks.

    I am also looking for fun stuff to do in the Leipzig Area. So outside the city. We'll drive from Leipzig to Gräfenhainichen. So anything cool we can do around that area..
