“Where’s the trade fair?”
According to the anecdote, a woman from Leipzig answered this question with “the fair is everywhere around us”.
On our sightseeing tour of the 850th anniversary of the Leipzig trade fair, we will see that she was absolutely right.
Because not only the old and new exhibition grounds are connected with the trade and the merchants. But also the trading yards and fair palaces at the city centre are, the Roßplatz, Apels Garten or the Waldstraßenviertel. The sightseeing tour proves that 850 years of trade fairs in Leipzig are a success story.
