How the Free Walking Tour Leipzig works
This free walking tour of Leipzig is a “pay what you feel our tour is worth” basis. Most travellers will give about 10 EUR. Please keep in mind that we put a whole lot of effort into the tour design, the website and all the resources you can find here. Leaving your guide a tip below 5 EUR is not an appropriate sign of respect towards those efforts. For those travellers on a super tight budget, there is our blog posts and the free map here on this page. We are looking forward to seeing you on the tour!

In a nutshell, our free walking tour of Leipzig features stories and information that show you what Leipzig is all about. Our tours are more than just dry dates. Our aim is to bring you closer to life in Leipzig by visiting the typical sights, but also some hidden places.

Do I have to book the tour in advance?
Yes. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we can only take guests on our tours who have pre-booked. Please register with your name, phone number and address. This way we can contact you if there has been an infection with the coronavirus on a tour. Bookings are free and you can cancel them at any time. You will find a link in your confirmation email. Your booking also helps us to plan our tours better and to provide enough guides. If you are a group of more than seven people, please write to us in advance. In our experience, a private tour is often better for an existing group. Unfortunately, when larger groups join a regular free walking tour, they often interfere with the tour. We want to make sure that all our guests have the most enjoyable tour possible and can therefore only offer private tours for groups of 8 or more.
What if I am late?
Each of our city tours starts on time, so please try to be there on time. We leave the meeting point about ten minutes after the tour starts. If you are late or can’t find the meeting point, please contact us.
How long does the Leipzig city tour last?
Each Free Tour lasts about 2 hours. The other tours last between 2 and 2.5 hours.
Can I take part in the tour in a wheelchair?
The tour is barrier-free. We move exclusively within the city centre of Leipzig within the ring road. However, it has to be said that we walk over cobblestones in many places in the city centre. Experience has shown that this can be strenuous.
Does the tour end where it begins?
No, the Free Walking Tour ends in the area of Augustusplatz, in front of the Gewandhaus. From there, there are many connections to Leipzig’s public transport system.
