As a venue for academic events, university church services, university concerts and events with our partners, the Paulinum is a stimulating meeting place for university members, residents of the city of Leipzig and guests from all over the world.

The University’s church services are now open to the public again. Extensive hygiene rules and preventive measures apply. Since the number of places is limited, we advise you to arrive early to avoid disappointment. Please note the coronavirus information (in German).
