Culinary experiences in Leipzig
"Auerbachs Keller" Restaurant
The historical barrel cellar, in which wine was first served in 1525, is the heart of Auerbach's cellar. In this extraordinary place, history comes alive when the master of the barrel cellar or indeed anyone requests the barrel cellar ceremony, a well-known and popular spectacle.
With the stories of the cask cellar master in that historic vault, guests will breathe the spirit of history, hear full of sound and see impressive things. Only during this ceremony do the doors open to the lowest room of Auerbach's cellar, the witch's kitchen. This is the only place where you can enjoy the legendary rejuvenating drink of Faust and Mephisto in a regeneration ceremony. Whether this magic is enough to fly out of the cellar when riding the barrel is up to you.
Discover the footprints of Goethe's Faust or follow Luther's trail. Another entertaining tour to explore the historic wine taverns and the Great Cellar is "Mephisto's Kaffeeklatsch".
In one of Leipzig's oldest landmarks, you can brew your own company beer, travel in first-class in a historic tram or experience Gose ambassadors and station inspectors doing their daily tasks.
Built in 1842, the Bayerischer Bahnhof is the oldest preserved terminal station in the world. As a place of unforgettable gastronomic experiences and the home of the Gose – Leipzig's top-fermented beer speciality – it is once again a top address.
The glass-enclosed rooms offer you and your guests a wonderful setting for an unforgettable time. Hold meetings or celebrations and indulge in culinary delicacies. The beer garden, shaded with old sycamore trees, is the place to be in summer.
