Leipzig's Autumn Festivals
Full of fantasy – multi-faceted – creative
A visit to Leipzig in autumn is especially worthwhile:
With the Leipzig Jazz Days, the Designers' Open, the Grassi Fair Leipzig, DOK Leipzig, the Lachmesse (European Festival for Humour and Satire) and the euro-scene Leipzig (Festival of Contemporary European Theatre), the city offers multi-faceted art and culture highlights within a short period of time.
This video clip shows that Leipzig is far more than Bach and the Battle of the Nations.
Leipzig is a sprightly city, where film and theatre collide, and design does the jitterbug.
Only very few German cities can say they host as many high-quality, international festivals as Leipzig. These festivals represent mutual enrichment for the areas of film, theatre, music and art. The Autumn Festivals provide a united focus for these activities, and thanks to their contemporary and challenging forms, they draw Leipzig into its cultural future.
Lachmesse - European Festival for Humour and Satire
Germany's largest international cabaret and theatre festival is a barrel of laughs which guarantees entertaining evenings on Leipzig's stages.
