Typical Leipzig

Dine like Luther, Goethe, Bach or Wagner in historic restaurants. Drink a "Scheelchen Heeßen" (coffee) in an Art Deco ambience or original coffee house style. You'll see - Leipzig's culinary options are positively (g)astronomical! Arabic, French, Japanese or Italian might not seem "typical Leipzig", but somehow they are. After all, Leipzig is a city where the whole world feels at home - and you can taste it, too!

But there are also typical specialities in Leipzig. So, for some gastronomical field research, try:

  • Leipziger Allerlei (vegetable mix with crayfish)
  • Leipzig Lerchen (or "larks" - marzipan-filled mini tartlettes)
  • Bachtorte and Bachtaler (mocha-ganache desserts dedicated to Bach)
  • Leipziger Räbchen (sweet donuts)
  • Gose and Leipziger Allasch (specialty beer and caraway liquor)

Well then, as the Leipzigers say: Gudn Abbedied!
