The City of linden trees is the largest city in the State of Saxony, Germany, and was originally settled as a place of commerce around 1015 Anno Domini. The city has grown into a modern hub of culture, history, education and commerce. This is the place where Goethe fell in love! Let it not be forgotten, though, that Leipzig (Leipzig vacation rentals | Leipzig travel guide) is a place of great leisure amongst so much intellect and growth. In fact, these forces play hand-in-hand in remarkable balance.

The city parks are lovely places to stroll, picnic and float away on the hours of a soft blue and green afternoon. The Clara Zetkin park or Auenwald floodplain forest are some of the best places for a healthy stroll through lush green and rushing water. Upon strolling for hours, you might find yourself at the Grassi Museum, which stands with its doors open to those seeking ethnographic and applied art exhibits, as well as an interesting permanent exhibit on musical instruments. Sports are abundant, as in many European cities. In fact, the German Football (soccer) Association was founded in Leipzig in 1900. One could have a peaceful stroll in the morning followed by a raucous soccer game in the afternoon! On a weekend, it is not uncommon to charter a boat on Lake Cospuden for a cruise and wine tasting for a lovely afternoon and evening.
