Wiedersehen, Leipzig!



The view of Leipzig from the roof of its tallest building, the Panorama Tower.

alte messe

One of the many DDR-era buildings in Leipzig. This is in the “Alte Messe” section of the city, where exhibitions were held in the past.


Bicycles are more popular than cars in Leipzig. Here, a row of bikes sit outside of a bike shop on Karl-Liebknecht Straße.


The view of the city from high up on a large monument called the Völkerschlachtdenkmal. I took this photo at 5 am with some German friends. The “Völki” was built in 1913 for the 100th anniversary of Napoleon’s defeat in Leipzig at the Battle of the Nations.



The view from my window of a double rainbow that appeared after a quick but intense thunderstorm.


“Graffiti Society.” We saw this being painted during the day, as we rode the train to school.


Clarissa, David, and Webb sit in Augustusplatz before our Gewandhaus Orchester concert on Thursday night.


Veronica waits at Augustusplatz before the concert. The Gewandhaus Orchester is one of the best orchestras in the world, and as a music theory major, it was amazing for me to be able to see them perform.


The market at Augustusplatz occurs two or three times per week. You can buy fruits, vegetables, flowers, baked goods, and other food items there.



Here’s Veronica on the steps of one of the dormitory buildings.
