4 Awesome Hostels in Leipzig, Germany
Leipzig is Saxony's coolest city. It is a playground for nomadic young creatives who have been displaced, but it's also a city of enormous history, a trade-fair mecca and solidly in the sights of music lovers due to its intrinsic connection to the lives and work of Bach, Mendelssohn and Wagner. To this day, one of the world's top classical bands (the Gewandhausorchester) and oldest and finest boys' choirs (the 800-year-old Thomanerchor) continue to delight audiences. Don't hurry your visit here: while you can easily do the sights in a day or two, to really experience the place stay for longer and acquaint yourself with Leipzig's less obvious areas: drink beer on the Karli, go antique shopping in Plagwitz or hang out with the punks in Connewitz. Whatever your plans for the area, you'll need somewhere to stay as your base for exploring. Here are a few budget friendly options in the area that can help you make the most out of your trip.
