The steps on the banks of the Karl Heine Canal are considered an absolute hotspot for relaxing and enjoying in the summer heat. In Leipzig's west, not far from the Philippus Church, there are stone steps overlooking the water. The hustle and bustle and the sounds of the city are far away, with a drink or a book in hand you can relax and soak up the sun. Every now and then you will see gondolas or canoes glide by. This isn't something that just sounds good, it is good.
