Tradition and Modernity


As a centre for the fine and applied arts, Leipzig is a real magnet for visitors. Its place in the international art landscape and its many museums and galleries make visiting the city a special experience for anyone with an interest in culture.

But Leipzig does more than display art – the city lives art. 'New Masters' are trained at the Academy of Visual Arts, and many of them later find their way to the Spinnerei artist centre in the western part of the city. Over 100 artists, including Neo Rauch and Tilo Baumgärtel, work at their studios here, located in a former cotton mill, and share the site with gallery owners, architects and designers. Visitors are also welcome to drop by at any time of the day.
