Mendelssohn‐Haus Leipzig

Leipzig, Germany

This house on 12 Goldschmidtstraße in Leipzig has been preserved as the last and sole private residence of the composer Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. It is of great historical and cultural significance.

Built in 1844 in the style of Late Classicism, the house is an important representation of its time and it preserves much of the original construction and information about its most prominent occupier, who lived with his family on the 1st floor beginning in 1845, and died there on November 4 in 1847.

Today, Mendelssohn's flat is a museum in honor of this brilliant German composer, virtuoso and conductor who was also a very good painter and active in the field of cultural and educational policy.

The visitor can experience in this flat an authentic place where many progressive ideas of the European musical life and the world of thought came from.
