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.
Leipzig doesn't just show art – it lives art. The Academy of Fine Arts trains and educates "new masters". Some of them later find their way to the Baumwollspinnerei (old cotton spinning mill) in the west of Leipzig.
However, museum enthusiasts can also find all kinds of hidden gems in the region around Leipzig. There is plenty to discover from historical and archaeological collections to exhibitions on local and regional history.
The multitude of museums and galleries makes Leipzig and its region a special travel destination for all art and culture fans.
