When I visited Leipzig last year, I made sure to check one of the city's most famous restaurants off my to-do-list: Auerbachs Keller, which is dating back to the Middle Ages and used to be the favorite restaurant of Germany's most influential writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe; he even included the pub's wine cellar and the legend of Mephisto into his play Faust. In the dark and cozy vaulted cellar rooms, we had home made beef roulade with red cabbage and Saxon potatoes dumplings - the perfect comfort food for colder weather. Because the restaurant is on the to-do list of many travelers, it's a good idea to make reservations. (Grimmaische Straße 2-4, 04109 Leipzig).
But there is more to Leipzig's restaurant scene than Auerbachs Keller; check out my list of some of the 5 Best Restaurants in Leipzig, ranging from International gourmet cuisine to Saxon specialties. Have more tips on where to dine in Leipzig? Leave a comment below.
