The restored Gothic St. Thomas Church (Thomaskirche) is one of Leipzig’s top attractions and it has a rich 800-year history, to say the least: right here, Martin Luther used to lecture, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart played the organ in the church, and Richard Wagner was baptised. However, it is most famous for being the church where Johann Sebastian Bach used to serve as a cantor for 27 years. The magnificent building is home to the master composer’s sarcophagus, and is a must visit when being in Leipzig.

Leipzig is charming in every season, so the best time to visit depends on the travel occasion and one's interests: in spring, parks such as the Auenwald begin to bloom, while from May until September, bars and restaurants open spaces are still ready to be enjoyed.
