  • Due to the measures related to the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), there is still a risk that the event may not happen as planned. Therefore, please make sure to register, so that we can inform you easily by e-mail about any changes.

The Veterinary Medicine campus is a historical place. Back in 1923 the 'Royal Veterinary College of Dresden' moved to Leipzig. Thus, veterinary medicine became the fifth faculty at the Leipzig University. The Institute of Veterinary Anatomy was established as an independent institute in Leipzig in 1923. The veterinary anatomical teaching collection currently comprises about 550 macroscopic-anatomical as well as embryological specimens, which are used as teaching material in veterinary education.

A second historical institution is the horseshoeing school of the Clinic for Horses of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. Since 1952, over 600 farriers have been trained here.

The tour includes a tour of the campus with a visit to both facilities presented.
