The oldest church in Leipzig can be seen on the road from the station to the city center, and its sits on this busy street, squashed in by all the shops and restaurants around, and dominated by the giant communist office tower behind.

It was built in 1150, but has been renovated many times since, picking up on the way elements of Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Classicist architecture, to produce a very pleasant view.

If only it was easy to get a picture of it...

Directions: Walk up Nikolaistrasse from the station. It's on your left.
