Guided city tour of Leipzig – the city of the peaceful revolution of 1989
Leipzig was the starting point for the events which led to the Peaceful Revolution of 1989. Still today the original locations, such as the St. Nicho-las' Church, where - after the Prayers for Peace every Monday - the demonstrations started along Augustusplatz and the central ring road to the headquarters of the secret police (Stasi) can be visited. The former Stasi headquarters have been turned into the Museum in the nowadays called "Round Corner". Leipzig is as well the hometown of Johann Sebastian Bach and worldwide known as the city of music, with its Gewandhaus and the opera house.
Visit of Mendelssohn House with brief guided tour
The house in Leipzig, 12 Goldschmidt Strasse, has been preserved at the last and sole private residence of the composer Felix Mendelssohn Bar-tholdy. It is of great historical and cultural importance. Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1847) is one of the most famous musicians to have lived and worked in Leipzig.
Leipzig has more revue shows per person than anywhere else in Germany and can be justifiably be called a cabaret capital. Leipzigs most famous and innovative variety show, the Krystallpalast Varieté has been alive in the heart of the city for the past 10 years, radiating elegance and contem-porary grandeur.
