About the city
The city of Leipzig, located in the southeast of North German Lowland, is the largest city in Saxony and the main city of the "Metropolregion Mitteldeutschland".
In 2015 Leipzig will be celebrating the 1000th anniversary of its first documented mention and the anniversary year will offer an array of highlights.

Leipzig has been a trade city since at least the time of the Holy Roman Empire. The city sits at the intersection of the Via Regia and Via Imperii, two important Medieval trade routes. The city was once one of the major European centers of learning and culture in fields such as music and publishing and it became a major urban center within the German Democratic Republic after World War II, but its cultural and economic importance declined despite East Germany being the richest economy in the Soviet Bloc.
Since the reunification of Germany, Leipzig has undergone significant change with the restoration of some historical buildings, the demolition of others, and the development of a modern transport infrastructure.
The historic downtown area of Leipzig features a renaissance style ensemble of buildings from the 16th century, including the old city hall in the market place. There are also several baroque period trading houses and former residences of rich merchants.

Leipzig has developed at the crossroads of important trade routes as a centre of trade, culture, and sciences, and to this day, the city continues to function as a bridge between East and West. The citizens of Leipzig have always welcomed and cared for international connections and exchange and the city's atmosphere, its quality of living and its hospitality are vivid proof of the European and international focus of its citizens and institutions.

Leipzig today is an economic center and the most livable city in Germany (according to the GfK marketing research institution). Among Leipzig's noteworthy institutions are the Leipzig Opera and the Leipzig Zoological Garden. In addition, Leipzig's international trade fair center in the north of the city is home to the world's largest levitated glass hall.
