City of Music: Leipzig

Leipzig. Where music sets the tone.

Music is always a mixture of tradition and zeitgeist. Especially in Leipzig. For over 800 years, Leipzig has breathed music and celebrates its musicians with festivals every year. The trade fair city will be hosting three spectacular music festivals. These will put Johann Sebastian Bach, Gustav Mahler and Richard Wagner in the limelight in an extravagant manner with arguably the world's largest Bach fan festival, the performances of ten world-class orchestras in only twelve days and all of Richard Wagner's stage works in just three weeks. Leipzig's musical calendar leading up to 2022 is record-setting and once again makes the trade fair city a mecca for fans of classical music.
