Cool things to see in Leipzig in 3 hours or less -

Bottom right - Thomaskirche, the church where J.S. Bach is buried. Mendelssohn also served as the music director there for many years. This place just reeks music history! There are two organs - the main balcony organ is a Mendelssohn type instrument, and the side balcony organ is a baroque style instrument. Sadly, no original instruments have survuved.

Above right - The Rathaus (town hall) and Nikolaikirche

Above - Mendelssohn's home. Check out the carpet! That explains a lot, I do believe! Also check out detail of the wood floor. Mendelssohn also had great taste in art...
