Gasthaus Alte Nikolaischule
Restaurant in the former citizen's school
The Alte Nikolaischule was built between 1511 and 1512 as Leipzig's first city school. The present tavern opened in the historic building after a renovation that took place between 1991 and 1994. The menu offers primarily plain and Saxon cuisine, which is served to their guests in a dining room that used to serve as a classroom for the students. Visitors also have access to the arcade café, the English colonial-style lounge on the first floor and, in summer, a large patio with views of the Nikolai column, the granite fountain and the Nikolai church.
