Leipzig's starting point was the "urbs Libzi," the Ottonian castle ward that was first mentioned in 1015.
Since the 12th century, Leipzig has developed into one of the most important cities in the Mark of Meissen. The city's economic importance and the presence of four monasteries (including the Dominican convent, which housed the infamous indulgence preacher Johann Tetzel) underscored Leipzig's significance, which was further enhanced by the founding of the university in 1409.
The traces of Leipzig's medieval history can still be found in the modern cityscape today.
Stations of the tour include the Matthäikirchhof (castle ward), St. Thomas Church, residential buildings from around 1500, the market square and Old City Hall, St. Nicholas Church, Ritterstraße (university quarter), and Paulinum (formerly the Dominican monastery, then university church, demolished in 1968).
