The Old St. Nicholas School at the St. Nicholas Churchyard is one of Leipzig's first community schools and one of its most valuable cultural monuments. It was first opened to the public in 1512. Influential figures such as Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Johann Gottfried Seume and Richard Wagner went to school here.
