Leipzig between the Battle of the Nations and the Book Fair
Leipzig has been famous for its fairs since the 12th century. But it also stands out for its impressive buildings, history and personalities. The first documented mention of Leipzig was in 1015. However, the area was settled much earlier, according to archaeological finds. Leipzig's history has traced an impressive arc over the centuries. This is where Richard Wagner and Johann Sebastian Bach composed music, and where Goethe wrote Faust while attending the local university. For a glimpse into bygone eras in the city center, amble down the alleyways past the Gewandhaus concert hall or ascend the nearly 115 meter tower of the New Town Hall. Well worth seeing is the excellent view of the city from the top of the Monument to the Battle of the Nations, which commemorates the 1813 defeat of French emperor Napoleon by the armies of Russia, Prussia, Austria and Sweden. IntercityHotel Leipzig is the perfect starting point for your sightseeing tour.
