We offer a view of Leipzig that you won't find anywhere else. The monument to the Battle of Nations commemorates Napoleon's defeat in 1813. Do you know that it was also the last bastion of the German army in Leipzig? Learn about Robert Capa, the most famous war photographer of World War II, and how he is connected to Leipzig. Why did Bach compose so much music? How did the GDR control its people and even inspire love? The architectural style that the Nazis hated but had to tolerate. The bakery that produced 480 loaves at the same time. The poets, the composers, the writers, the revolutionaries. Leipzig has played such a big role in German history but has long been forgotten.

You can rediscover all of this on our tour. Be there!

After traveling around the world for a while, I returned to Leipzig and didn't find a walking tour on offer there. So I started the first free tour in the city in 2016 and then expanded the offer bit by bit. Get to know this lively city with me from the perspective of a local. Including many valuable tips on what else to experience, eat and drink in the city and where the best places to go out can be found.

Great host Francis who had so much knowledge about the history of Leipzig and was he was also very enthusiastic to share great stories and anecdotes about the history of this special place. It made us so much more aware of all the historic events that took place and added so much more value to our stay here! Would highly recommend him to take you around the sights!

It was a nice time with our tour guide. She was very informative and we learned a few new things about the city even though it was not our first time there. She made sure to answer to all of our questions. We could even have nice casual conversations about everyday life in Leipzig and the best places to eat and drink something delicious. We will definitely check other tours with them next time :)

A good tour which showed a nice summary of Leipzig - just a little confusion as normally this is a free tour and by booking on Airbnb you are doing your tip in advance

War eine kurzweilige und interessante Tour mit vielen Infos, was so in 2 Std reinpasste bei so einer vielseitigen und historischen Stadt. Nicht so viele Anekdoten wie angekündigt, was der (Qualität der)Tour aber keinen Abbruch tat. Vielen Dank an Chema.
