This building catches your eye both in the day time and at night - however, I would probably advise seeing it later when it's illuminated. Located in the historical center of the city, so would not take too much time of effort to look at if you are already in the center :)

This is the most beautiful medieval building in the City! A must visit at least to see the exterior, not to mention great museum! There are often different events on the square, and some musicians at the arched corridors surrounding the building.

What a wonderful example of old German architecture. The building is huge and stunning for a 450 year old building. It was so fortunate that it wasn't completely destroyed in WW II and that it was restored so magnificently. We came late in the evening and didn't have a chance to see the inside.

The building is in a square, really nice to sit and rest. The building itself is quite beautiful, I didn't go inside, not sure if you can? But Leipzig is generally a beautiful city, so I'm sure everyone sees this building as some stage

The museum occupies the two upper floors of the old city hall. The upper of the two floors covers modern times through the 20th and 21st centuries. They are interesting times, and there is a lot to absorb. However knowledgeable you are, you will see something new. If you are looking for an introduction to the subject this is a... More

Leipzig showed some unexpected beauty. Not too far from Berlin, it is absolutely a place to visit. The old City Hall has a prominent place on the square. There was a wine festival on the square, which really added to the joy!
