Social Events Leipzig.
There is much to look forward to in Leipzig when you come to visit. Discover for yourself this City of Trade Fairs with its rich traditions and let yourself be amazed at the City's architectural beauty, cosmopolitan life style and cultural diversity.
Some of the things you can look forward to are:
Leipzig Opera House
Leipzig Opera House bears testament to Leipzig’s 300-year-long tradition of nurturing opera. The Leipzig Opera does not have an orchestra of its own, the Gewandhausorchester traditionally plays at the Opera as well. Both auditoria face Leipzig’s Augustusplatz. Following the destruction of the Neues Theater on Augustusplatz, which had been used since 1868 for theatrical and operatic performances, during the Second World War, a modern opera house, the Leipzig Opera House was built on the same spot between 1956-1960, reprising the late-classical design of the previous structure.

Leipzig Art Museum
The foundation stone for this, the first major new art gallery and museum to be built in the new German States, was laid on 7 June 2000. Conceived as a cube with a glass exterior skin, its terraces, courtyards flooded with natural light and the large museum hall, which break up the interior space, create variety and surprising perspectives as you walk through the building. Visitors remain in constant contact with the city outside through the glass facade as they walk around.
Krystallpalast Varieté – Theatre of the senses
“If anyone wants to invite business partners or friends for a meal in Leipzig, and would like to offer them something more than the noisy conviviality of a local pub, then they go to the Krystallpalast Varieté. Here the local inhabitants and their guests can have a three course meal in the slightly dusky elegance of an intimate little theatre and enjoy comedy, cabaret and artistry at its finest.” (The Stuttgarter Zeitung newspaper). Let yourself be entertained and enchanted and let your taste buds be spoiled.
