Autumn really is my favorite season, when all the leaves change to the most beautiful colors.
The rather unimposing building just off the Dittrichring in #leipzig was the headquarters for the loathsome East German secret police known as the Stasi. Reputed to be the foremost organization of state security in the former Soviet Bloc, there is literally no facet of East Germany life that was not penetrated Stasi agents or conspirators. The museum today is a memorial to the victims of this terror. #triplocal
The Museum of Fine Arts in Leipzig was a lovely modern gallery space. Offering an eclectic assortment of works ranging from Renaissance paintings to modern sculptures, you're sure to find something across one of it's many floors. The interior spaces are soaring and tastefully done. I enjoyed this museum quite a bit.
The Grassi Museum was a fun arts and culture museum in #leipzig. When I went there was a rotating exhibit on East Asian arts and crafts. The exhibits to tastefully displayed inside an intimate space that made for a delightful experience. I enjoyed this place. #museum
The Völkerschlachtdenkmal, aka the Monument to the Battle of the Nations commemorates the struggle against Napoleon's France and the Battle of Leipzig in 1813. The tower provides a lovely view towards the city and the park itself is nice to walk around. Visit the cemetery next door with a rather elaborate crematorium. #germany #history
