Leipzig and its University

Leipzig is one of the liveliest and most dynamic cities in Germany. Whether as a musical city, trade fair mecca or city of books – Leipzig has been an important European centre for hundreds of years.

Famous poets such as Lessing, Klopstock, Gottsched or Goethe moved here. Philosophers such as Leibniz, Nietzsche and Bloch influence thinking in the city to this day.
Art, science and culture are still main features of the city, which was founded in 1165, with several thousand academics carrying out research in almost 20 non-university research institutions, at the University and in six other colleges in the city. The St Thomas Boys’ Choir, the Gewandhaus Orchestra, the many museums and a lively theatre scene all characterise the cultural life of the city. After the Peaceful Revolution Leipzig developed into a booming region of East Germany, and is now experiencing a renaissance as the logistics and high-tech centre in the heart of Europe. Present-day Leipzig stands out due to its economic dynamism, its high level of culture, its many green areas within the city and, last but not least, the outstanding quality of life for families, for children and also for the growing number of older people in our society. Taking a walk through the city is very worthwhile.
