Tour guides like to compare it to Corso Vittorio Emmanuele in Milan. Mädlerpassage, erected by a certain Anton Mädler who owned a suitcase factory in 1912, is the most elegant among Leipzig’s malls. During the fairs wine and china were presented and sold here. Auerbachs Keller and the Faust statues at the entrance (see separate tip) attract about everyone who visit the city. Most don’t proceed further, they rub Faust’s foot and then turn round and leave. A walk through the whole mall is herewith recommended, though. Expect shops and prices to be upscale, but window-shopping is free…
