The fascinating history of this renowned art museum is a story of civic engagement. Back in 1848, when the Leipzig art association opened the municipal museum at the Moritzbastei, the hundred or so works on display were donations from the citizens of Leipzig. And the present-day collection of 3,500 paintings, 1,000 sculptures and 60,000 drawings and prints is largely comprised of gifts from private initiatives and generous patrons.
Maximilian Speck von Sternburg, Alfred Thieme, Adolf Heinrich Schletter, Fritz von Harck, Hans-Peter Bühler, Marion Bühler-Brockhaus: these are the names of people who have shaped the character of the museum for 150 years. The works of the current collection span the period from the late Middle Ages to the present day. These can now be displayed in full in the new 7,000m² museum building, which opened in 2004. There is a particular focus on Old German and Dutch paintings from the 15th to the 17th century, Italian paintings from the 15th to the 18th century, French paintings from the 19th century – including works by Eugène Delacroix, Edgar Degas and Claude Monet – and German paintings from 18th to the 20th century. A whole floor is devoted to comprehensive displays of works by Max Klinger and Max Beckmann. In the Contemporary Painting section, the museum features mainly exhibitions of painters belonging to the Leipziger Schule, such as Bernhard Heisig, Werner Tübke and Wolfgang Mattheuer, as well as extensive collections by the movement's younger generation led by Neo Rauch and Daniel Richter.

Co mówią turyści z całego świata
The festival near Großpösna is the most important indie-rock festival in the eastern states of Germany by now. The Beatsteaks, Placebo, Billy Talent and the Foo Fighters are regular guests such as German bands like Seeed, K.I.Z. and Casper and fire up the two stages in front of 25.000 visitors. Situated at Störmthaler See, the festival guarantees a fun weekend of sunshine, hanging by the lake and seeing some favorite bands without any feeling of the area being overcrowded. As one of the greener festivals, there is a „Green Camp“ and the „Viva Con Agua“ initiative creates ecological awareness. For fans of: The National, Donots, 30 Seconds to Mars, Arctic Monkeys, Kettcar, Interpol http://www.highfield.de/czytaj dalej »
WGT Wave Gothic Festival
We met John Ommeln from Lipzi Tours in Leipzig. He organizes guided tours for groups as well as individually adapted tours. You can choose from tours by bike or walk. We walked around in the western parts of the city, in the areas Plagwitz and Lindenau. It was incredibly beautiful! John really knows everything about Leipzig. And we learned a lot. Such as the fascinating history of the city, today's music scene and food culture. Speaking of food culture, veganism have become very popular here. Exciting! Did you know that Leipzig was previously known for its fairs? The fairs meant that people from other parts of the world came to the city, which was unusually during communism time. It has affected Leipzig a lot and has led to that the people there are more open today. The city was, because of this, not as closed to the outside world. We got to see several beautiful parks during the long walk. We are very fond of all the green surroundings mixed with the beautiful and magnificent houses and graffiti. In Leipzig nature meets the urban.czytaj dalej »
Food & art
Leipzig is a stunningly beautiful city and yesterday we got to see lots of it. Among other things, we went on a guided tour called eat-the-world.com in the area Suedvorstadt. We walked around the area for several hours and visited various places with food theme. Including a coffee roastery, an ice cream parlor and a restaurant. Eat-the-world.com wants every single tour to be a bit of a surprise, so therefore we do not disclose everything about the sites. But it was both good and interesting and the guide was awesome! During the tour we also got to see several beautiful and cultural places in Leipzig. Afterwards we went straight out to Spinnerei for another guided tour. Spinnerei is located just outside the city center and is a former spinning mill which is now a huge part of the art scene in Leipzig and widely known in art circles. Here you will find both exhibition halls, galleries, studios, where artists work and independent cinema. Before we went back into town we had time for a beer in their biergarden. Cosy!czytaj dalej »
First night in Leipzig
We took the train towards Leipzig this evening. It went quick and smooth. We arrived approximatly after one hour. Once there, we walked to our hotel, Penta Hotel. It is an extremely stylish design hotel, far from the Scandinavian interior design we are so accustomed to. Who does not dream about a gold glittery floor in the elevator? Unfortunately the girl who checked us in, made us a bit disappointed when she was neither friendly or interested. She was a little out of place in the fantastic looking combined check-in desk and bar. Internet costs extra on the hotel, which is a shame. And you are only able to use your login on one device at a time. Tonight we had dinner at Vapiano. It is a favorite home in Stockholm. Here in Germany thought, the prices are half as much compared to Sweden. Hurray! After dinner we strolled around a few blocks in the central parts of the city. The city feels spacious, beautiful and fresh. We really looking forward to explore this place in the coming days!czytaj dalej »

Flower Power Bar
The sign pointing towards the Flower Power on Petersstrasse is so big that you'll have no way of missing it, even if your eyes are already a bit tired. Once you've entered the bar your eyes will have to adjust again to the the unusual interior. Watch out for flowers growing from the walls and ceiling and make sure you don't miss the cow that runs on a cable just above the bar. At the back of the bar there's even a dartboard. Ask for the password for free wifi! This is the kind of bar you'll want to hit late – or if you come early check out the live band.czytaj dalej »
At Vodkaria over 600 different kinds of vodka spirits are waiting for thirsty customers. A small part of which is displayed in a large fridge right in front when you enter the bar. But – before you get started on shots also make sure you check out the menu. Polnish Barschtsch, russian Pelmeni or an islandic specialities with names like “Löggaeslumyndavélunum” are not only delicious – they're also a great idea if you're planning on a long night of drinking. Nastrovje!czytaj dalej »
Right in the middle of the party mile of Gottschedestrasse you'll find spacious Cafe Louise. At night little remains of the cafe and the place turns into a laid back bar with great food and a good selection of drinks to choose from. If you're heading there on a Friday night you can return to the scene of crime the following morning as the Cafe offers a great breakfast on Saturdays!czytaj dalej »
