It's especially worth visiting Leipzig in the Autumn:
with the Leipzig Jazz Days, the Designers' Open, the Grassimesse Leipzig, DOK Leipzig, the Lachmesse European Festival for Humour and Satire and the euro-scene Leipzig festival of contemporary European theatre and dance, the city offers a wide variety of internationally significant artistic and cultural highlights in 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 art forms and thanks to their contemporary and daringly challenging formats, they pave the way for Leipzig's cultural future.
