Zum Arabischen Coffe Baum (closed for renovation)

Short facts

The museum is a partner of the Leipzig Card / Leipzig Regio Card. You will find your benefits described under "General information/more price info".

A few metres from the Old Town Hall is the Coffe Baum, Germany's oldest coffee house in the heart of Leipzig's Old Town.

The oldest coffee house in Germany has been serving Saxony's favourite drink since 1711. After renovation work in 1720, the establishment was given the name "Zum Arabischen Coffe Baum". The building on the Barfußgässchen pub mile is home to rustic parlours on the ground floor, the Lusatia restaurant on the first and three cafés on the second floor. On the third floor there is a coffee museum. Each cosy room has its own history, offering a taste of the lifestyle, the hustle and bustle of the Coffe Baum Society at the time. The café-restaurant was already very popular in 1694 when Robert Schumann regularly used it as a meeting place for his Davidsbündlern. Today, in addition to the famous "Scheelchen Heeßen", you can enjoy hearty cuisine based on Saxon recipes.
