Sunday coming from Leipzig – Sonntag nach Leipzig


I just got back from a wonderful weekend in Leipzig, where we celebrated a friend’s birthday, canoed on the canals and stroll around the Westbesuch. A street market with lots of things you don’t need, concerts, yummy food and tasty cocktails (strawberry daiquiri!) and lots of fun.

During the German division, Westbesuch was the name for visitors from the West to East Germany bringing presents and things, that were difficult to find or prohibited.

Ich komme aus Leipzig wieder, wo wir ein herrliches Wochenende verbracht und bei hochsommerlichen Temperaturen Geburtstag gefeiert, auf den Kanälen mit dem Kanoe gepaddet sind und Wasserschlachten ausgewochen haben. Am Samstag waren wir auf dem Westbesuch, einem Flohmarkt, der von den EinwohnerInnen liebevoll organisiert wird. Lauter Sachen die man nicht braucht, Konzerte lecker Essen, erfrischende Cocktails und super Stimmung.

Während der Deutschen Teilung war der Westbesuch derjenige, der Geschenke mitgebracht hat.
