Leipzig General: 33 reviews and 37 photos
Favorite thing: This church was founded in about 1165. It has been a Protestant church since 1539.
Weekly prayers for peace were held here on Monday evenings throughout the 1980s, and these gradually developed into the Monday demonstrations against the GDR regime. In October 1989 these demonstrations attracted over 100,000 people, and started spreading to other East Germany cities, leading to the fall of the GDR and the reunification of Germany.
