Auerbachs Keller Restaurant

Known from Goethe's drama "Faust"

The historic tavern is composed of the Großer Keller restaurant, which offers classic, hearty Saxon cuisine; the Mephisto Bar with cocktails and live music; and the Historische Weinstuben, a traditional wine bar located in the four lovingly restored guest rooms, which are suitable for groups of 20 people or more and can be booked for special events. The famous eatery under the roof of the Mädler Arcade is one of the tourist attractions that is definitely worth including in your Leipzig visit.

Goethe may also have spent time here because it was famous long before he was.

"Anyone who travels to Leipzig for the fair,
Without going to Auerbach's Cellar,
Should keep quiet, for that declares:
He has not seen Leipzig."
