Leipzig is both the economic hub and the cultural capital of Saxony. The cradle of German publishing, an important university city and centre of classical music for generations - Bach, Mendelssohn, Schumann and Wager all lived here - it also played a major role in the fall of the Berlin Wall. It was from here that the first demonstrations spread in 1989. Leipzig was quick to modernise following reunification, its arcades and pedestrian streets making the city centre more and more attractive.
