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.
euro-scene Leipzig - Festival of Contemporary European Theatre
The only festival for contemporary theatre and modern dance in the new Federal States, and one of the most important events of its kind in Europe.
