The Leipzig weekly markets on the marketplace offer fresh goods such as fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and eggs - mostly from the region.

Those who prefer to admire the bustling market from a distance can do so comfortably from one of the many cafés nearby. 

Strolling in the city

Shopping in Leipzig is a true experience! The retail shops in the city centre attract shopping enthusiasts from near and far.

The Petersstraße and Grimmaische Straße are now among Germany's most popular shopping streets. In addition, Leipzig offers lavishly restored historic buildings housing exclusive shops.

Experience extraordinary shopping flair in Leipzig's network of historical shopping arcades and courtyards, one-of-a-kind in Germany!

Tip: combine a city tour with a shopping tour. In between, you can recharge in one of the numerous restaurants and at the end of the day, bask in your post-shopping glow in a bar or pub.

A detour away from the central shopping streets in Leipzig is also worthwhile.

Anyone who likes unique or second-hand items will love the Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse - not only in terms of shopping, but also for its restaurants and pubs. Between every bar or café, there are shops worth a look.

Quirky and hip shopping opportunities await collector along Karl-Heine-Straße in Plagwitz. A look at the events calendar is especially worthwhile, because once a year the street becomes a promenade for the "Boulevard Heine" event. At the street festival BoHei & Tamtam, you'll find handmade, unique products. Artists, artisans, craftsmen, designers and other creative people offer their goods.
