The city is the oldest trade-fair town in the world and Leipzig Fair is also known as the “mother of all trade fairs”.
It is also an economic and commercial centre, art and educational destination of great importance nowadays.
The town’s architecture is very interesting and rich in contrast. It is a mix of historic, East German and modern buildings.
Leipzig is also special because one third of the town is covered by green parks and forests leading directly through the city.
