Leipzig's best-known cultural centre

Concerts, theatres, parties, pubs, beer garden - urban life pulsates in the only preserved part of Leipzig's city wall. The Bastei is a popular meeting place for students, tourists and locals to celebrate and experience culture. The vaulted cellars make for a unique atmosphere. Visit the almost 500-year-old fortress every Saturday on a guided tour.

The Moritzbastei can also be rented for corporate events, congresses, family celebrations and cultural events.
