To enjoy like Goethe once did in Leipzig

In 1525, the renowned physician and philosopher Dr. Heinrich Stromer von Auerbach (1482-1542) started serving wine to students in the wine cellar of his house on Grimmaische Gasse in Leipzig, marking the beginning of Auerbachs Keller's extraordinary success story. Since then, many different innkeepers have made this convivial tavern what it has always been and still is today: a globally recognized symbol of the city of Leipzig!

The two salons, Helena and Anton Mädler, offer a rather romantic and intimate atmosphere. Here, smaller groups can enjoy a culinary experience by candlelight, at a beautifully set table. Wedding parties often choose to celebrate in these salons to ensure that this special occasion remains unforgettable.

In the entrance area to the Großer Keller, you will find our souvenir shop and event office. Here, you can book guided tours and reserve tables, as well as collect your event tickets or purchase vouchers. Many offers can also be found in our online shop.
