The square itself is not specially charming but it is bordered by a number of interesting buildings and therefore an almost obligate addition to any circuit in the center of town. A good part of it is pedestrian.

This is a beautiful open square. You can see nice buildings like the Opera house, concert hall and the University of Leipzig. It is part of the city center and within walking distance to the Market square, main shopping area and many other attractions.

Beautiful square with the opera house as its focal point. Immediately in front a lovely fountain so relaxing to sit there while waiting for a performance or tram---the tram stop is right there so convenient --the Hauptbahnhof is just a short ride away.

Ein Guter Treffpunkt! When the sun is shining, a coffee or beer on the steps of the opera makes for a great chilled place to sit!

Four nice buildings on a square is as good as most cities can boast: the austere Opera House, the DDR-style Gewandhaus concert hall, a modern crystal of a church, and one of Leipzig's Tyler skyscrapers
