Germany Tourism: Leipzig
The German National Tourist Office offers basic information on Leipzig
sightseeing, shopping, dining, suggested excursions, and other topics.
The online encyclopedia offers a quick introduction to Leipzig, with notes
on the city's history, musical culture, educational institutions, economy,
media, sports, annual events, and more.
Leipzig has been noted for its trade fairs since the 1400s, and its new
Exhibition Center (which opened in 1996) hosts nearly four dozen major events
that attract more than a million visitors per year. The Leipzig Book Fair and
the GC Games Convention rank high on the list of events; another with a catchy
title is the DOG-Kongress (with DOG standing for "Deutsche Ophthalmologische
Gesellschaft," not our canine friends).
