Our 24 Hours in 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 meet at Brot & Kees in Markleeberg where everything is homemade and they only use regional products. After breakfast, we take a walk down to Cospudener Lake, just a few minutes away. If the weather is nice Georg takes our SUP boards with him – we love paddling on the lake in the tranquility and pure nature. We are almost always the only people out there.

For a late lunch I usually run back into town and we meet at Hotel Seeblick (Südvorstadt) for some pancakes, or at Liebes Frollein – a tiny new coffee place in town – for a delicious piece of cake. Café BAU BAU is another favourite café of ours, it’s close to Johannapark and inside the Gallery of Contemporary Art.

The restaurant Max Enk is a very nice place for lunch – they have an awesome lunch menu that’s great value for your money. We would most probably just grab a quick bite from Vleischerei, a vegan bistro.

For dinner we’d either have a BBQ with friends at home on our terrace, or head over to the “Musikerviertel” district 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 from any other restaurant in town and it really has its own flair. A MUST if you are in Leipzig! I absolutely love their tuna tartare and Georg can’t leave without having a slice of their heavenly chocolate cake.

More places to stuff your faces are Sakura (tasty sushi) and the Westin Hotel’s restaurant Falco (fine dining). The best place for dinner with a great view is at the Panorama Tower which houses a restaurant and a bar.

For something more laid back we suggest grabbing 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. And the sweet potato fries are too good to be true.

On weekends we like to have a few drinks at the Chocolate bar, which has a nice dance floor downstairs and is located in the city centre. The club Elipamanoke is perfect for electro music lovers like us! If you’re not in the mood to hit the clubs, then check out Moritzbastei where they offer all sorts of events, stand-up comedy, and much more.
