Welcome to Goethe's "Little Paris"!
Leipzig is a city of superlatives. It boasts Europe's largest terminal station, Germany's oldest coffee house and the tallest town hall tower in the country, while Belantis is the largest amusement park in eastern Germany and the riparian forest of the Auenwald is unrivalled in Europe. The Panometer, a former gasometer, treats visitors to the world's largest panoramic picture, and Europe's largest construction site was where the city transformed its old mining landscape into Leipzig's unique New Lakeland. Numerous lakes offer bathers the chance to relax on the beach or enjoy fantastic water sports facilities. The Monument to the Battle of the Nations and Leipzig Zoo aren't just famous far and wide, but they are also unique.
