We can grill here?!

As soon as the sun peeps out from behind the clouds, the smell of sausages, grilled cheese and all sorts of other treats fills the air. Now the question is: is that even allowed? We have good news - there is no grilling ban in Leipzig. That said, there are a few simple rules so Leipzig's parks stay as beautiful and clean as they are right now.
