Leipzig is the place for you!
Time and again, visitors to this city of culture and commerce are impressed by Leipzig's diversity. Whether your interests lie in the theatre, revue, music, architecture or art, as a keen fan of culture you will be well rewarded by a visit to Leipzig.
Leipzig is richly endowed with theatres of all shapes and sizes. There's a stage for every type of production, from a lavishly produced play at the Centraltheater to an innovative new production at the Theater der Jungen Welt.
Leipzig has more revue shows per person than anywhere else in Germany and can justifiably be called its cabaret capital. Visitors to the city can choose from a veritable feast of revue shows, with the Saxon dialect coming in for a bit of gentle ribbing from all the acts.
The Leipzig cabaret scene also features some impressive variety shows, where the visitor might be treated to a breathtaking display of aerial acrobatics, magic, music and comedy whilst enjoying some of the city's culinary delights.
The Leipzig Lachmesse (Laughter Fair) is Germany's biggest international festival of satire and cabaret and takes place every year in the autumn. The eleven-day Humour and Satire Festival is a chance to enjoy top-quality cabaret, comedy, clowning, music and fun at over 100 different events.
