    Burgplatz

    The Burgplatz is a huge square behind the New Town Hall. Some big events take place on it.
    While the World Soccer Championship a big screen was placed on it and the crowds came to watch the game.

    "Unzeitgemässe Zeitgenossen" (sculptures)

    by german_eagle Written Nov 14, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the many works of art which you can find on Leipzig's streets is very strange - it is called "Unzeitgemässe Zeitgenossen" (something like contemporaries behind the times).

    The figures were made in the early 1980s by sculptor Bernd Göbel. They show - in ironic way - types of the East German society. One of them is called "Stadtgestaltiker" (something like city designer) - he doesn't look at us; and he has a bomb with him. :-)

    Hainstrasse

    Hainstrasse

    This street , stretching from the Market square towards northwest, is IMO the best preserved in the old town. It is a popular pedestrian zone with nice shops and beautiful old architecture. And it is full of places with rich history.

    Hainstrasse 3 with its gable, alcove and decoration is an excellent example of the change of style from Renaissance to Baroque.

    Hainstrasse 5 was home of writer C. G. Körner, one of his guests was Friedrich Schiller.

    Hainstrasse 9 is where Theodor Fontane continued with his Pharmacy studies in 1841/42.

    At the end of Hainstrasse you see the "tin-can" called building ... see my next tip, please!

    Old water pump

    The old water pump does not provide water any more but it is a romantic addition to the street scenery, and useful to lock up bicycles…

    Location: Neumarkt, corner Grimmaische Straße
