Back when I was working at the Agroholding, I was blessed with three wonderful trips to Germany – one crazy road-trip, where we did 4 cities in three days (this was a tough project in terms of scheduling and logistics, but I nailed it), attending the biggest Agricultural fair in Hannover and the Autumn Academy by Uni Hohenheim where we had a bus trip for 3 days – Leipzig was one of the places we visited.
Unfortunately I didn’t note anything down and it’s been a year now so I do apologise for the lack of text here. Anyhow, here is what you see from a window on a short bus tour around Leipzig (the tour was kindly arranged by the Eastern Europe Center of Uni Hohenheim).
This is the Monument to the Battle of the Nations, it commemorates Napoleon’s defeat at Leipzig. To me it looks just too huge, inappropriate and totally not the pretties on Earth (as the poster says).
And also Leipzig has an enormously huge train station with a shoping mall in it (Promenaden Hauptbahnhof). With everything from the grocery store to the Body Shop and Mango, you name it. Open till 10 pm on weekdays (this is great since most of the shops in Germany are closed by 8 pm).
