The city of Leipzig is located in the north-east of Germany, about 160km
south of Berlin. Situated at the crossing of two major medieval trading
routes, Via Imperii connecting Italy with the North and Via Regia connecting
East and West, it was once considered as one of the major European centers of
trade, culture and learning. Today Leipzig is an easily likeable, green and
young city with a rich cultural diversity. Particularly in the city center
one can find many beautiful historical buildings from different architectural
periods, museums and parks. Also, lovers of classical music appreciate
Leipzig due to the impact of Bach and Mendelsohn-Bartholdy, who lived in the
city for important parts of their lives.
