View from City-Hochhaus (UNI) to the Peterskirche (St. Peter's Church) and Cospudener See (far end).

The Peterskirche (St. Peter's Church), built 1882–1885, represents an outstanding neo-Gothic structure in Saxony, and one of the most excellent symbols of the historicism found throughout the German-speaking area. In terms of enclosed space, it is Leipzig’s biggest church with the tallest tower found in the city (88 meters or 289 ft) that dominates the skyline of the southern suburb of Leipzig. A hall church, the Peterskirche follows German tradition, but it also refers to the Gothic style typical in French cathedrals.

The Cospudener See (sometimes translated as Lake Cospuden) is a lake situated south of Leipzig. It is on the site of a former open cast mine.
The lake has become highly popular with the local population, with long stretches of sand beaches (some clothing-optional, following the
East German tradition of public nude bathing) and with a sauna directly located at the lake. There is also a small sailing harbour.
