Cultural and festive evenings in Leipzig
Leipzig awaits you with a rich cultural offering. Whether high culture or off-stage, music, theatre or Leipzig's well-established cabaret scene - this city has something for everyone.
Directly in the city centre, on the Augustus plaza, the Gewandhaus and its world-famous orchestra are your guarantee for musical highlights - just a few steps from the Opernhaus (Opera). And not far away from downtown and the main train station is Leipzig's most important theatre - the Schauspiel Leipzig. Leipzig is also home to a lively cabaret culture. 'Biting' material can be found in cabarets such as the Pfeffermühle, academixer or Funzel, and why not enjoy an entertaining show at the Krystallpalast Varieté Leipzig. You can also dance the night away in Leipzig's clubs.
Information on Leipzig's night culture can be found in the city magazine Kreuzer.
