The Leipzig citizens are renowned for their warm and friendly manner and will do their best to make you feel welcome throughout your stay. In times past, the Leipzig people were renowned for their particular fondness for traditional coffee shops, which has been a the case since 1695 and earned the people of Saxony the nickname "Coffee Saxon". To this day, coffee is one of Saxony's favourite drinks and the city still has a very vibrant coffee shop culture and you will find many to choose from. The restaurant "Zum Arabischen Coffe Baum" is reputed to be the oldest coffee house/restaurant in Europe. The historic four storey building houses a multitude of cosy rooms, each with its own story to tell – the coffee museum on the third floor is particularly informative – everything you've always wanted to know about coffee but were afraid to ask!.
