1. The most favorable time for relaxing holiday is the period from May to October. During this period, rainfalls are rare; temperature is in the range of 15 to 25 degrees Celsius. The coldest month of the year is January, but it would be very interesting to visit Leipzig in the Christmas period.
2. It’s most profitable to exchange currency in banks, many of them don’t charge clients any fee. In exchange offices you have to pay attention not only on the exchange rate, but also on the size of the commission; sometimes it can reach 10% of the convertible amount.
3. Most stores and malls open at 9:00 am and serve visitors to 6:00-7:00 pm. Saturday is a half-day, and Sunday is a day off.
4. The word ‘ab’ can be seen on many price tags in shops and at markets. This means that price shown is minimal for this good, but after you have chosen a particular thing, it can become much higher. In this case, it’s better to clarify the real value of goods immediately.

It is also appropriate to leave some cash to a taxi driver and a maid at a hotel.
