Classic Open Air in Leipzig

It’s no coincidence Leipzig is regarded as the musical capital of Germany: a lot of remarkable music representatives got an education here, lived in Leipzig or were born in the city. Every year many festivals and concerts of classical music are arranged in Leipzig attracting a great number of tourists and lovers of the arts.

One of the most outstanding and major events in summer is the Classic Open Air Festival.

In 2020, the Classic Open Air festival in Leipzig lasts two days. The Gewandhaus Orchester goes open air and performs in the popular Rosental park to celebrate the end of the concert season. You can pack a picnic basket, blankets, chairs, and barbecue equipment and enjoy the concerts in a relaxed summer atmosphere.
