Your event in the Moritzbastei

In the heart of Leipzig, the Moritzbastei welcomes you as a very special venue. Built between 1551 and 1553, the historic building is today the only remaining part of the old city fortification. Since 1982, the venue has been used as a cultural center and gives various events an unforgettable setting.

Thanks to the good connection you can reach the Moritzbastei in every way. Enjoy one of the regular concerts, readings, movie nights, theater performances - or bring your own company! Small festivities are just as good as large parties or gala dinners. Thanks to a 25-year banquet experience, every event goes smoothly.

Successful business events and incentives

Business events such as presentations, exhibitions or company parties are particularly popular within the given circumstances. Whether in the upper cellar with its impressive brick vaults and two large bars, in the event ton with its inimitable flair or in the lower cellar Ratstonne with a long table for up to 30 people - your business occasion benefits from an incomparable inspiration!

Of course, you have modern technical equipment with audio, lighting and conference systems and several stages available. Professional staff is reliable by your side. Guided tours are offered as an incentive option.

Weddings against a unique backdrop

With its unique charm, the ambience is also the framework for the most beautiful day of your life. Celebrate with your guests a wonderful wedding and rely on the equipment and decoration entirely on individually designed complete solutions from a single source.

On the roof or on one of the terraces, you can enjoy climbing greenery, fireworks and wonderful views in summer. If the weather does not play along, of course, event rooms are also available within the walls.

Culinary delights at its finest

Seven meters below the city, Café Barbakane welcomes you in the Unterkeller with its light-filled ambience. Whether you are viewing the extraordinary comic collection on the walls or retreating to the gallery, you will feel at home. The latter is often combined with the Fuchsbau, the in-house cocktail bar with its curved counter and the Schwalbennest wine bar.

The kitchen team creates warm and cold buffets for up to 1,200 people or sets menus as you like. Saxon-rustic dishes get a modern twist while grilling is always accompanied by additional vegetarian components. Try a modern and fresh, regionally-seasonal cuisine, the range of vegan
