Many sights in Leipzig are located in the rather small city centre. You don’t need a vehicle here. Distances are short and most of the centre of Leipzig is pedestrianised.
There are also many sights in Leipzig outside the city centre. For these attractions there are sightseeing tours by bus: See our article
For the city centre there are organised tours. On a city tour with a guide you can see all the important sights. These include the famous St. Thomas Church, where Bach worked, and St. Nicholas Church, where the uprising in the GDR began in 1989.
