Leipzig is a German economic metropolis with historic roots. Trade fairs have been held here for over 800 years. After the fall of the Berlin Wall the cradle of East Germany’s peaceful revolution went on to become the innovation powerhouse of East German industry. Siemens, BMW, Porsche, Amazon, DHL and the solar power industry were early arrivals.
The Saxon metropolis has a diverse cultural scene. Leipzig delights lovers of classical music with the choir of St Thomas’s, the Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Bach Festival.
