Mendelssohn Festival Leipzig
1 - 7 November 2021

The memory of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy is very much alive in Leipzig: Since 1997, the city has traditionally honoured the composer and musician on Mendelssohn Day with the Mendelssohn Festival in the week around the anniversary of his death on 4 November.

Starting in 2021, the Leipzig Gewandhaus and the Mendelssohn House will breathe new life into the festival with a varied and sophisticated programme. From 1 to 7 November, visitors to the festival can enjoy concerts with the Gewandhaus Orchestra under the direction of conductor Andris Nelsons, as well as choral and chamber music from the Romantic period with high-profile artists and ensembles. Don't miss this highlight and make a reservation today for our 2021 travel package.

In 2022 Leipzig will celebrate the 175th anniversary of the composer's death - with many events which will culminate at the Mendelssohn Festival. We will also be putting together an attractive travel package for this event, which we will be delighted to share with you at the end of 2021.
