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.

Due to recent pandemic developments, the University church services are once again being held as online services. The assembly hall and altar area will remain closed until further notice.
