The large stone steps in Lindenau are a great place to relax! In sunshine and surrounded by tranquillity and green foliage you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Karl Heine Canal. In summer, more than a few Leipzig residents from the neighbouring area pop up around here to enjoy a few hours of sunshine and conversation, picnic, read or watch the gondolas, canoes and boats  pass by. If you are exploring the exciting districts of Plagwitz and Lindenau on the west side of Leipzig, it is worth taking a stroll along the canal and then lingering on the stairs of Philippus Church
