Grassi Museum of Applied Arts

The Museum for Applied Arts is one of the three museums in the Grassi museum complex. There is a rich variety of art in the collections, which include both unique hand-crafted pieces and series-produced industrial pieces from every era. It is one of the oldest museums for applied arts in Germany and was carefully restored after World War II. Highlights of the museum include the Baroque art cabinet items and an exhibition on Asiatic Art. The descriptions are also displayed in English as well, and audio guide tours and special tours can be arranged in advance.

When asked to name a famous writer who used to live in Leipzig, most people would think of Goethe rather than Schiller. Yet, the great author, poet and playwright Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) spent several years working here and produced classics such as Don Carlos or An die Freude, while living in the district of Gohlis. Situated in an old, half-timbered farmhouse, the Schillerhaus commemorates Schiller's works, and provides an overview of everyday life at the time. As such, it offers a fascinating insight into German literature as well as Leipzig's local history.

Museum of Printing Arts (Museum für Druckkunst)

Leipzig with its annual book fair, which is one of the largest events of its kind in Europe, has a long history of book making and publishing. The Museum of Printing Arts reflects this history with its exhibitions displaying how books are made and the art of printing. This is not the kind of museum where one can only view pieces from a safe distance behind a velvet rope rather it is where you can get your hands dirty getting involved in workshops. You can learn about everything from the technical aspects of printing presses dating back over a century to the finesse of typography. -Laura Kenny

When it was established, The Rundling was a great building with three concentric circles of housing. The building was a great addition to the architectural type of that era but soon after its establishment stricture was canceled from operation by the local council. However, today it is still loved by residents and especially architecture geeks. The building has become a main study point for many students and art lovers who have come to see its structure as somewhat eccentric and fabulous.
