Leipzig's museums have something to offer for everyone.

Leipzig is a magnet for visitors as a centre for fine and applied arts, and has been a fixture in the international art scene for many years. The multitude of museums and galleries makes the city a special destination for all art and culture fans.

But Leipzig doesn't just show art – it lives art. The Academy of Fine Arts trains and educates "new masters", many of whom later find their way to the Spinnerei (an old cotton mill) in the west of Leipzig. This old industrial location is home to around 100 artists, incl. Neo Rauch and Tilo Baumgärtel – they share the spaces with galleries, architects and designers.

Visitors are always welcome. Come take a look and discover unique exhibits from the world of music, history, art and literature!

Both young and old can discover vast treasures in Leipzig's museums.
