Leipzig, for 500 years a Booktown

Leads you into the “graphic district? (the district of printing and publishing). The first book in Leipzig, „Glossa super Apokalypsim“ was printed as early as 1481, and by the second world war Leipzig was the leading printing and publishing town in Germany. But then, in a single night of bombing, around 1,000 commercial bookfirms were destroyed and 50 million books burnt. The route leads past important publishing and printing houses to the former centres of the German book trade. A visit to the graves of Leipzig publishers in the Old Johannes Graveyard can be combined with the tour.
