Mendelssohn in Leipzig

The certainly most important Leipzig Gewandhaus - Conductor was Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.
Born in 1809, he came to Leipzig in 1835 (aged 26), where he worked until his death in 1847. Here, too, he founded the first conservatory in Germany in 1843. The only Mendelssohn - Museum worldwide (at the same time also the family´s only still existing abode) was established in Goldschmidtstraße 12, the house, where he lived and died. The walking tour follows Mendelssohn´s traces, e.g. : Mendelssohn - Memorial, St Thomas´s church, Städtisches Kaufhaus (site of the first Gewandhaus concert hall and the first conservatory), university church, Mendelssohn - House.

On request also with a visit to the museum.
