Saxony's most traditional cabaret has entertained audiences since 1954 with contemporary and highly explosive political highlights. Biting mockery, polished dialogues, comic scenes and infectious musicality - satirical variety and intelligent entertainment are in harmony at the Leipziger Pfeffermühle cabaret. A wide programme is complemented by guest performances with cabaret artists from German-speaking countries. They guarantee hot, peppery fun. 

The Leipziger Pfeffermühle is located in the heart of the city - opposite the Tourist Information in Kretschmanns Hof.
