Hi my name is Matej Eber and I founded Free Walking Tour Leipzig in 2017. After I came to Leipzig as an Erasmus student, fell in love with the city and decided to stay. We are currently the highest-rated tour on Google and TripAdvisor. Today we are a group of 7 guides: Svetlana, Florian, Johannes, Juan, Alejandro, Marius, and me. :)

Tour description

Find out where Leipzig's most laid-back neighborhood is. Plagwitz was an industrial area until the early 1990s.

Currently, Plagwitz has turned itself around once more and has become a center for street art, the creative industries, international cuisine, and dive pubs. Come along on this three-hour trip as we examine the roots of "Hypezig," the history of industrialization, graffiti, alternative bars, Spätis, and thrift shops.

Florian was a superb host. Passionate, knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour could probably be a little shorter. But it was well worth it.

Leider wurde die Tour 25 Minuten vor Start storniert. Sehr schade, echt ärgerlich und unprofessionell. Wir waren schon unterwegs zum Treffpunkt und hatten unseren Tag „drumrum“ geplant…

We had a great tour with Matej! It is clear that he loves his city and its history. He was very nice to be around and led us to cool places in the area. Afterwards, he gave us tips for restaurants in the area - thanks for the great experience!
