Buy a beer and take a stroll down the canal – 10 points if you can spot a Coypu aka the love child of an otter, a beaver and an oversized rat…
Rent a canoe and explore Leipzig on the water (50 points for the Coypu because they’re much rarer on these waterways!)
Take a bike or a bus to Cospudener See, Kulkwitzer See or Naturbad Südwest and cool down on hot summer days. No Coypus to be found here 🙁
