Why Leipzig is worth a visit (second part)

Second post to introduce you to other faces of the Leipzig of yesterday and today, starting with some facades photographed in the city centre.

If you move away from the centre, you will discover many areas that are between dilapidation, squats and gentrification.

And a few gems from the early 20th century, like here, the Konsumenzeltrale. A Bauhaus-inspired style.

The city is rightly proud of its Grassi Museum, in a beautiful Art Deco style, built in the mid-1920s.

In another area, a little further away, you can discover the Leipzig Bayerischer Bahnhof. With an escalator that I found particularly photogenic.

In case you missed my other post on the city: https://wherever-it-is.com/2021/05/21/why-leipzig-is-worth-a-visit/

To know more about Grassi museum, I recommand this site: https://vielfaltdermoderne.de/en/leipzig-grassimuseum-2/ or on the Konsumenzentrale https://vielfaltdermoderne.de/en/leipzig-konsumzentrale-en/
