Neues Augusteum and Paulinum
University of Leipzig
The Neues Augusteum and Paulinum are buildings of the University of Leipzig and part of the new university campus. They border on each other and were designed as part of the new campus building in 2007. While the Augusteum was completed in 2012, the Paulinum auditorium and University Church of St. Pauli were not opened until the end of 2017. The latter offers 550 seats and a further 120 in the gallery. At the same time, there is a 120-seat prayer room separated by a glass wall.
The epitaphs recovered before the demolition of the Pauline church and the altar have found their place in the devotional room. Both buildings are located on the same site where they were demolished in 1968. The only fragment from the 19th century to be integrated into the new building is the so-called Schinkel Gate of the old Augusteum. Today it functions as the entrance to the building from the inner courtyard of the Leibniz Forum.
