We will start this free tour of Leipzig in Spanish in front of the impressive train station . From this monument we will go to the old town of the Saxon city.

We will pass through several representative warehouses and commercial passages, for which the city became famous during the fairs.

Next we will arrive at the church of San Nicolás . Do you wonder why a huge column in the form of a palm tree appears in front of her?

We tell you about it, since it symbolizes the most important events for the recent history of Germany.

We will continue the free tour of Leipz next to the university campus, one of the oldest in the country. We will also stop at the opera house and philharmonic building that continue the excellent musical traditions of Bach , Wagner , Mendelssohn or Schumann .

We will pass through the enormous enclosure of the New Town Hall , astonishing you with its size and beauty. Later we will go to the church of Santo Tomás , where we will contemplate the majestic statue of Juan Sebastián Bach - the legendary conductor of the choro famous for his compositions of cantatas and passions.

We will then explore Mädlerpassage , where we will admire one of the most famous German taverns immortalized by the poet Goethe in his masterpiece " Faust ".

The next stop will be at the Marktplatz . In this square we will admire the representative Old Town Hall knowing the commercial routes that contributed to the growth of the famous fairs.

After two and a half hours of travel, we will conclude the free tour in front of the " Runde Ecke " building. There we will see the communist architecture built by the " sword and shield " of the GDR -- the infamous Ministry for State Security . It is where you can say if you want to know a frightening system of permanent surveillance and terror developed by the feared and almighty Stasi or return to the square to enjoy the delicious Saxon food and delicious beers.
