I love visiting new cities and seeing all of the famous tourist sights. Recently, I visited the German city of Leipzig. My trip was amazing! Leipzig is quite a big city, and there’s so much to do and see. These are the top three places I visited in the city …
1. The Museum of Fine Arts
Sometimes art museums can be a little bit boring but I really enjoyed my visit to Leipzig’s Museum of Fine Arts. You can see lots of different types of artwork there – from pieces that are over 400 years old to modern art! I loved learning about different artists from across the ages. It was definitely a cool way to spend a rainy afternoon in the city!
2. The St Nicholas Church
This is a church with a very interesting past. The church has connections to both famous musicians and important political protests. I had heard a lot about this history, so it was amazing to finally visit the church in person. I was really impressed! Inside, there were beautiful paintings on the wall and the atmosphere was very peaceful.
3. Leipzig Zoo
In my opinion, Leipzig has one of the best zoos in the world! The zoo is huge, and there are so many different animals – including tigers, elephants and even koalas! The best part of the zoo is the safari area. There’s a real, flowing river and you can travel down it on a boat. It was so cool! I’d love to visit Leipzig Zoo again one day …
As you can see, there are some pretty cool tourist sights in Leipzig! If you ever visit this city, I would definitely recommend coming to all three of these places.
