Relaxation, art and culture
During a tour of the Leipzig cotton mill and its many galleries, visitors can gain insights into the city's lively artistic scene. The 91m Monument to the Battle of the Nations, built in 1913 in the south east of the city, offers great views across the city.
Excitement seekers can find it in abundance at the Leipzig racecourse. However anyone seeking relaxation should visit the "Leipzig lake district", which attracts bathers and water-sports fans from Leipzig and its surroundings.
