Leipzig, Bach memorial and St. Thomas' Church

Leipzig

Leipzig has seen many great minds come and go through the centuries: revolutionary thinkers and intellectuals from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to Martin Luther have left their indelible mark here.

If you would like to follow in Luther's footsteps in Leipzig, a good place to start is the Church of St. Thomas, which is still home to the world-famous St. Thomas choir today. Luther proclaimed his new ideas here in 1539. Contemporary impressions of the great Reformer can be found at the nearby gallery. The route to the gallery takes you past the historical Auerbachs Keller restaurant which Goethe liked to visit, and whose name is derived from a friend of Luther. Pleissenburg Castle, where Luther argued about his 95 theses with the Papal envoys in 1519, no longer exists. It was replaced by the new town hall in 1899.

Highlights

The Magic City of Leipzig has become renowned as a modern centre for music, hosting a eclectic programme of music events ranging from the Bach Festival and concerts by the Gewandhaus Orchestra to the four-day Wave Gothic Festival. History also continues to be written in Leipzig: the Monday demonstrations that started at St. Nicholas' Church played a major part in the fall of the Berlin Wall. This peaceful revolution is commemorated by the annual Festival of Lights.
