If you're into history, this museum is a must. It's big though, so I recommend starting in the middle if you're more interested in recent history (i.e. after the fall of the Berlin wall)

Come here in the late afternoon/ evening with some beers and sit down by the bridge as the locals do. Sometimes there's live music as well

Great for taking a swim on a hot day, there's even a beach with a small bistro. To get there, either rent a bike from Nextbike (it's a lovely ride through the forest) or take the S-Bahn from Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz to Markkleeberg and walk from there (much faster than the suggested connections on google maps).

Take an excursion through the interlocking system of natural rivers and canals to discover the inner-city and see for yourself why Leipzig is also called ‘Little Venice’. 🛶
