    Auerbach's cellar is the best known and second oldest restaurant in Leipzig. Auerbach's cellar, which was one of the city's most popular wine bars as early as the 16th century, owes its worldwide fame to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
    The cellar is divided into two areas: the four historical wine bars (Fasskeller, Lutherzimmer, Goethezimmer and Alt-Leipzig) and the Großer Keller, which was built in 1912 together with the Mädlerpassage exhibition center. Above ground is the Mephisto Bar, which opened in 1989.

    The property was built between 1530 and 1911 with the building complex Auerbachs Hof. On January 1, 1911, Auerbach's farm and a neighboring property were sold to the suitcase and leather manufacturer Anton Mädler (1864–1925). He had all the buildings demolished and, from 1912 to 1914, the Mädler-Passage exhibition hall built according to plans by the architect Theodor Kösser.

    The result was a five-story passage house with a 142 m long, four-story passage. The arched portal at the entrance to the passage is flanked by two life-size female garments that carry grapes and a vase. They refer to the purpose of the house as a wine cellar (Auerbach's cellar) and exhibition house in the porcelain, ceramics and earthenware sectors (exhibition area 5,700 m²). A porcelain bell game made of Meissen porcelain has been in the rotunda of the passage since 1969. Until 1989 the Mädler Passage was used as a trade fair building.

    Beautiful passage. At the top of the hour, the Meissen porcelain glockenspiel rings. You can take a look in Auerbach's cellar during opening times.
