What do you like about the city you live in?

Leipzig is a cultural hotspot where every interested beeing can find his niche. Furthermore the city is as green as possible. The large stretches of alluvial forests and parks are calming. Furthermore the surroundings offer a lot of possibilities for birdwatching
