The Leipzig outdoor seating culture
Leipzig has made an excellent name for itself as a city of outdoor seating culture .
This term, which is associated with beer gardens in other cities, holds cult status in Leipzig. Most of the over 1,400 Leipzig restaurants and cafés have outdoor seating.
The phenomenon of the outdoor seating culture also existed earlier, but the development got a boost after 1990. Catalysts for this were the urban strategy of the "pedestrian-friendly city centre" as well as the generous administrative approval for outdoor seating. But also structural measures, such as the renovation of the old trade fair houses and inner courtyards, as well as the increase of footpaths, promoted this development.
The high concentration and variety of locations gives Leipzig its unique atmosphere. And yes, the "footpath tables" are the ideal place to see and be seen.
