I really enjoyed finding my own way around Leipzig while staying there on an official visit to attend a conference. I was able to visit the Mendelssohn-Haus museum which was the place where he lived with his family, meaning his wife and children. It's a good place to tour with family as they have a room where you can conduct... More

This kind of museum makes me feel very happy. You can almost feel yourself as a guest by the great composer. Everything is renovated in very high standards. The place is very informative and cosy in same time. You are welcomed very friendly by the staff. Try the conductingsimulator in the downstairs!

The House is only 100m from the Gewandhaus and is the last address of Mendelssohn. There is a lot of information about the composer and a reconstruction of his study as he left it. You can try your hand at conducting his music (not as easy as one might think), and there is a small tea/coffee cake facility. The tea... More

This house/museum is well worth visiting as part of the Musician's Trail. Allow yourself plenty of time as there is lots to do, hear and see.

I'm in love with Leipzig and with Mendelssohn's house. This is a must see attraction for musicians and non-musicians. The house, almost 200 years old, is intact. The rooms and furniture are all original..even Mendelssohn's hair! You will appreciate this genius's talent as an artist: his music, painting, letters, etc. You can now even conduct an orchestra in their media... More

Allow a couple of hours for this museum. It's not huge, and in some places sparsely furnished, but is interesting.

The former house of Mendelssohn Bartholdy is very unpretentious located close to the Augustus square in Leipzig. Inside the Exhibition is modern, interactive, very Close to the time of 1840 with furnitures etc nicely resaurated. The Composer is known to most People by ist famous Sommernachtstraum overture, his Scottisch symphony, the Lieder ohne Worte for piano and the oratory Paulus... More

Conduct the orchestra, listen to the music, see the artifacts and visit the apartment. This is a really fab experience for anyone with any interest in music, especially if you've ever wanted the chance to conduct an orchestra. Superb.

You can see his forniture, his piano. A high pattern museum, with high tech rooms. Good price and localization even though it's not in the very center like the others attractions.
