While in Saxony I especially loved the energy Leipzig offers. With good weather there are people everywhere; cafes, markets, bands and other performers playing in the street, kids splashing in the fountains, it gave me energy too.
I would characterize Leipzig as a destination for youth. Yes there is plenty of beautiful architecture and museums but also a vibrant nightlife.
Leipzig has several pub districts, one of the most popular being the Drallewatsch. Don't forget to try the locally brewed Leipzig Gose, a top-fermented beer that can be enjoyed at most pubs and cafes in town.
