This is where Mendelssohn lived the last 12 years of his short life. Aside from the original rooms themselves, you can listen to some of his music in good quality audio and see a collection of personal artifacts. Historical overview of the Mendelssohns' lives, especially of the life of the workaholic Felix. Also open on Mondays.

The apartment is located over two floors - the ground floor being the entrance, cash desk, café, cd shop etc. - the day we visited the admittance charge... More

Despite Nazi attempts to wipe out any trace of Mendelssohn,his house is there and open as a fine museum. Well, better than a museum, it has a real feeling of being a home. Lots of interesting exhibits

This museum on the life and music of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy incorporates the story of his personal life and musical career, as well listening to his music. It is all laid out in a relaxing and calm environment - the house where he and his family once lived - and gives one an excellent insight into his life. Outside is... More

This is the house where Mendelssohn died and is furnished as it was in his day. There are however amazing interactive activities - conduct your own orchestra or listen to the music. The staff are delightful and very helpful and an english audio guide is available.

We have visited the Leipzig Mendelssohn House again. In fact, we went in for a concert with no particular intention to re visit the old artifacts we have already seen in previous visits. We were however surprised to find out that even Mendelsohn could still be innovative. On top of the original bits and pieces of Mendelsohn’s time and the... More
