500 years of Reformation will be celebrated everywhere in 2017, and Leipzig will be no exception. The city is the site of Martin Luther’s appearance in the famous Disputation that confirmed his final break with the Roman Catholic Church. Come to Leipzig and follow in the footsteps of Martin Luther and Johann Sebastian Bach, an avowed Lutheran! Exhibitions, music festivals, the Kirchentag on the Way and many other events will bring history alive as they look to the future.

The Panometer Leipzig is taking its visitors on another journey beneath the waves (until the end of 2017). The TITANIC 360° Panorama revisits the most famous shipwreck of all time and shows the ocean giant as it is today – 105 years after the catastrophe – at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. The celebrated panoramic artist Yadegar Asisi is not only presenting the subject of the luxury liner’s demise, but also exploring the age-old human fascination with mastering nature.

Explore the Leipzig Region: Colditz Castle

Leipzig Region offers a wide range of historic highlights. One you should not miss is Colditz Castle. The history of this iconic castle dates back 1,000 years within which it has witnessed a diverse range of use. However, most famous are the years between 1940 and 1945 when high-level war officers from the Allied forces were held prisoners in the internment camp at Colditz Castle. Despite its escape-proof reputation some POWs (prisoners of war) came up with highly inventive escape plans and managed to flee, which led to the legendary fame of Colditz Castle. Today, the picturesque place overlooking the Mulde River is a popular destination for a day trip from Leipzig. So come and escape to rather than from Colditz!
