The former home of the composer couple Robert and Clara Schumann is one of the few examples of preserved classicist architecture in Leipzig. A permanent exhibition in the historical living rooms on the first floor tells you about the life and work of the artist couple in Leipzig.

You can play in Robert Schumann's former study, where he composed the world-famous "Spring Symphony". In addition, concerts and readings are regularly held in the faithfully restored "Schumann Hall". The Schumann House is considered a real gem among Leipzig's concert halls. The Biedermeier-style music room enriches the museum with a sound installation by artist Erwin Stache. The objects can and should be tried out. Each and every item has a personal or technical connection to the time in which the Schumanns lived. 

The museum in the Schumann House offers something very special for children: the play area, which combines nature, play and music.
