Welcome to our historic restaurant at the heart of Leipzig's old city.

Just like millions of guests before you. Goethe was here, too! Of course! But AUERBACHS KELLER is not primarily famous because Goethe was here, Goethe was here because of an old saying:

„He who travels to the trade markets
of Leipzig without visting
Auerbachs Yard must hold his peace.
It proves: He has not seen Leipzig“

René Stoffregen and staff
