Mädler-Passage Leipzig

Grimmaische Straße 2-4 in 04109 Leipzig

Pure Pleasure

Leipzig’s first port of call for connoisseurs

As we all know, we tend to eat with our eyes – but the Mädler Passage, with its unique historical architecture, is not just a visual treat. For food and wine connoisseurs it is also one of the first ports of call in Leipzig City. The culinary heartbeat of the arcade is Auerbach’s Cellar, made famous by Goethe’s “Faust”. What’s more, a host of bars, bistros and a gourmet food store present a wide range of delicacies for your enjoyment – most of them with a view of the wonderful strolling promenade. In the form of pre- or post-dinner entertainment, the Sanftwut cabaret has been thrilling visitors to the Mädler Passage for the last 20 years.
