1.5 hours guided walking tour in the historic city centre of Leipzig

Hardly any other city in the world has such a long and various musical history like Leipzig. Musicians like Johann Sebastian Bach (choirmaster for 27 years of the world famous Leipzig Thomas Boys’ Choir), Robert Schumann, Richard Wagner or Mendelssohn as well as conductors like Kurt Masur, Herbert von Karajan and Riccardo Chailly etc. are inseparably linked to Leipzig. The world famous Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Gewandhaus concert hall have cultivated classical music and personify the city. Moreover, numerous music festivals (Bach-festival, Jazz-festival, Mendelssohn days, Classic open etc.) are held in the city all over the year and attract tourists from all over the world. We will show you round the centre and tell you about the City of Music in connection to its past and present in an 1.5 hours guided tour.

For the tour “Leipzig – city of music” please note booking number (2) and language (English or French) on booking form.
