Most of the city’s sights are located within walking distance, e. g. the Old Town Hall, St. Thomas Church, St. Nicholas Church, diverse museums and galleries.

Luther Way in Saxony

The Luther Way in Saxony is an invitation to visit the places of work of Martin Luther and other Reformers. The path leads to cities where the Reformation had gained a foothold, for example in Leipzig, where, in 1519, the famous Leipzig disputation had been held. In 1539 Luther delivered the celebratory sermon in St. Thomas Church to ring in the Reformation.
