Leipzig is Germany’s tenth most populous city and is located around 160 kilometres southwest of Berlin and has since reunification become one of the most livable cities in Germany. Leipzig has a rich and diverse cultural life and a history of political action and resistance. Most prominently known for the non-violent Monday-Demonstrations against the regime of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) that contributed to the fall of the Berlin Wall that marked the end of the GDR regime.
