Full description

Get to know the city of Leipzig on this relaxed tour in red double-decker buses featuring the city's famous 'Messemännchen' mascot. This roughly 90-minute city tour takes you to Leipzig's most interesting sights, spaced out across 13 different stops. At any point, you can hop off at any of the stations, and hop back on whenever you'd like. The buses ride in regular, short intervals, so that you can stop or start at your own pace. The main meeting point for beginning or ending the tour is on Richard-Wagner-Straße. If you choose a day ticket, you will receive a free 45-minute guided tour in addition to the 90-minute city tour. The guided tours take place from March until the beginning of the Christmas Markets. You don't need to give prior notice to take part in the guided tours; simply come to the meeting point on Richard-Wagner Straße, across from the Central Train Station/East Hall. You will be led by professional tour guides who introduce you to Leipzig's sights in an entertaining way.

    Had a tour with Bärbel as a tour guide on 08/11/22. Bus and tour were great. since I already did a tour in 2018, I was able to draw comparisons and I have to say that the tour or rather the route had changed slightly for the worse, so that you had to approach some points differently or pass them by differently. otherwise great ride and I can warmly recommend it to anyone who is visiting Leipzig or those who live in Leipzig.

    Unfortunately, we didn't really get the exact location of each station because the bus didn't always stop. You should give advance notice so that the bus stops. If you then just want to get in on the go, then you'll have a hard time here. We don't know this from other cities. The price is ok, even if there aren't that many sights in Leipzig. We thought it was good that a "real" guide was there and that the information didn't just come from the bank.

    I had booked the ticket online 2 days in advance. The voucher had to be exchanged for a ticket on site, which went very smoothly. As a travel guide, Susanne was on board the bus, who provided us with a lot of interesting information about Leipzig. Thank you again for that. The bus we were traveling in was getting pretty old. Maybe a rejuvenation of the bus fleet should be considered, because that is also a flagship of the city of Leipzig. Otherwise, a tour through Leipzig with the "RED Hop on/Hop off buses" can only be recommended.
