24 hours Leipzig

I usually run to our favorite breakfast place which is about 7km one way from “Johannapark” in Leipzig downtown while Georg is taking the car. We then usually meet at “Brot & Kees “in Markleeberg where everything is homemade and they only use regional products.

After enjoying our breakfast we take a walk down to Cospudener Lakewhich is only a few minutes away. If the weather is nice Georg takes our SUP Boards with him – paddling on the lake we enjoy the tranquility and pure nature. Especially on weekdays we are almost the only people out there most of the time.

For late lunch I usually run back into town and we meet at Hotel Seeblick(Südvorstadt) for some pancakes or for a delicious piece of cake at “Liebes Frollein“· This is a tiny new coffee place in town. As an alternative I also recommend the Café Bau Bau, which is placed in the gallery for contemporary art close to Johannapark. Another great location for having lunch is Max Enk. The food is excellent and the price range is really easy. But often we just end up at Vleischereifor a vegan snack in the city.

For dinner we either have a BBQ with friends at home on our terrace or head over to the district that is known as the
“Musikerviertel” to the restaurant B10. The owner is from New Zealand and you can tell he has been all over the world. The food is different to any other restaurant in town and it really has its own flair. A MUST if you are in Leipzig! I absolutely love their tuna tartar and Georg can’t leave without having eaten a piece of their chocolate cake.

Another dinner restaurant for different tastes is the Sakura for delicious sushi and the West Inn Hotel for the restaurant Falco. An extraordinary dinner experience you will find at the Panorama Tower, because of the amazing view over Leipzig. You might also just come for a drink – the bar is a cool place for a quick stop.

For something more laid back we suggest to grab a burger at “Burger am Kreuz” – the variety there is huge! Even if you prefer your burger vegan style this is the place to be. Besides that the sweet potato fries are heavenly.

When going out with friend at night, you will find us most certainly at the Chocolate Bar. Here you get wonderful drinks and downstairs is the dancefloor. Also its location is easy, because it is in the city centre. We love electronic music, thats why we are a big fan of the Elipamanoke. This is our club for long party nights. For a very different night, you might like to check out the Moritzbastei – a place where all sorts of cultural events like stand up comedy or theater take place. Have a look, if something meets your taste. Enjoy Leipzig!
