Walking Tour Leipzig-Südvorstadt: Traditional, colorful and youthful
We'll begin our culinary tour in Leipzig's Südvorstadt, outside the imposing Federal Administrative Court building. First, we’ll take a walk along the tucked-away Pleiße, then we'll dive into the colorful hustle and bustle of the former medieval trade route fondly known today as the 'Karli' or 'Südmeile'.

From magnificent buildings dating back to the area's industrial days to delicious delicatessen shops, there's something here for everyone. On the food front, we’ll encounter modern fusion cuisine. Come with us  and visit lively locales and experience 'Karli's' wild charm. Feel the warm hospitality of Leipzig's people as you sample their traditional delicacies.

During the Südvorstadt-Tour, you’ll learn about its history, architecture and diverse entertainment offerings. You’ll sample a variety of culinary specialties, and be given recommendations to specially selected restaurants. Come with us and get to know Leipzig through its food, culture, and people. After this tour, you'll be prepared to wander through Südvorstadt like a real Leipziger!

You will find an exciting range of culinary stations on your tour, such as:

  • a traditional craftman's workshop
  • a sweet, savory and sensuous café
  • an original sports bar
  • a shop specializing in Mediterranean delicacies
  • a backyard craft shop
  • a hidden spice shop
  • a Caribbean greeting

For most, the food samples are enough to constitute a full lunch. Please inform us of any special dietary requirements (vegetarian, diabetic etc). We will try to tailor our tour accordingly.

"My wife and I accompanied by her parents decided to see Leipzig from a food testing view with Ina as our guide. We took the tour during the March 2013 snowstorm and had a great time. Ina made sure we visited every stop as well as answering every question we had about Leipzig. We would advise anyone to try it out.

"Dear Ina, Our group enjoyed the tour VERY much and many have returned to Mio and shady for dinner reservations. We even had one of our guests (a cardiac surgeon in his profession) who wore a pedometer that day to let us know how many steps we took!&(Over 6,000 steps)

I must tell you also that our group just fell in love with Susanne!&She was a wonderful guide and had so much interesting information to share with us.&We look forward to seeing her again on Monday!

I will encourage our group members to write reviews on TripAdvisor when they return to their homes as we want to share our wonderful experience on the Eat-the-World Leipzig tour with other travelers.

With best regards,
Karan, NY/ USA (January 2013)"
