The climate of Leipzig (Germany)
Leipzig is a city with a long history. This former East German city suffered a lot during WWII. However, many buildings have been restored after the war. The historic downtown area is a car-free zone which makes it pleasant to stroll through the old streets and passages. The stock exchange of Leipzig was founded in the 17th century and was the decor of the marriage between William of Orange and Anna of Saxony. Famous composers such as Bach and Mozart performed here. Leipzig has a moderate maritime climate with small differences in temperatures between summer and winter. During the winter subzero temperatures may occur. However, in general winters are mild. Precipitation figures are highest during spring and fall. During the summer a warm wind may blow causing temperatures to rise. During extremely hot days temperatures may reach 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit).
