Campus- Tour  


Discover the new Augustusplatz campus

On a guided tour, you can see the buildings of the new Augustusplatz campus and learn about the historic roots of Leipzig University, the ideas and goals behind the design of the new campus, and the art-historical treasures that can be found in the new buildings.

The focus of the ca. 1 to 1.5-hour tour is the usage of the New Augusteum and the historical pieces of art in its modern foyer. On Augustusplatz itself, the eye-catching and much-talked-about modern “Paulinum Aula University Church St. Pauli” combines an auditorium and a space for religious services under one roof. In order to provide an idea of the usage and design of the Paulinum, the tour guides will not only explain the history of the old Pauliner Church but will also describe the ideas and planned changes to the new architectural concept. A tour of the Paulinum itself is unfortunately not possible at this time. Continued construction is taking place in the building and the construction management/SIB public enterprise has announced that until further notice no public tours may take place in the building. But you can be assured that we will do our best to show you as many of the new buildings as possible, with the addition of photographs to illustrate the information provided. Starting at the Main Building, the tour passes the Moritzbastei and the new dining hall in the park, progressing to the remodeled Lecture Hall Building with the new campus library, and on to the reconstructed Seminar Building. Then the tour passes through the Leibnizforum and ends with a view of the back of the Paulinum and the Auditorium Maximum in the New Augusteum.
