Central at the station

The new HYPERION Hotel Leipzig is located directly on the east side of Leipzig Central Station in the city center, which is famous for its cultural and music scene. The station - itself already a landmark - offers optimal connections to the trade fair or to the Red Bull Arena Leipzig, Leipzig's stadium. In addition to the elegant hotel complex, the completely redesigned area between the station and Brandenburger Strasse also includes the new long-distance bus terminal as well as a pedestrian passage and "Flanier Plaza". The direct proximity to the main train station is also ideal for all city travelers who would like to reach the sights, restaurants and theaters in the city center on foot.

IN a short time everywhere

Augustusplatz is just a five-minute walk from the HYPERION Hotel Leipzig. With an area of around 40,000 square meters, it is one of the largest squares in Germany. Surrounded by the opera house, which opened in 1960, the Gewandhaus, inaugurated in 1981 under the direction of Kurt Masur, and the impressive university buildings - the almost one hundred meter high "Weisheitszahn" and the modern glass building, reminiscent of the Gothic Paulinerkirche, which was demolished in 1968 - the square impresses with its cultural flair.

Goethe's footsteps

Take a seat on a bench at the historic Mendebrunnen fountain or go in search of the "golden egg", the democracy bell that commemorates the Monday demonstrations of 1989.

Then stroll from Augustusplatz along Grimmaische Straße to Mädler-Passage. Flanked by the bronze statues of Mephisto, Faust and the students, the entrance to the Auerbachs Keller restaurant is located in the Art Nouveau passage. The Leipzig student Johann Wolfgang von Goethe himself enjoyed sitting here and created a literary monument to the wine cellar in his "Faust".

The restaurant is divided into the four historic wine taverns and the large cellar built in 1912. If you come here directly from the HYPERION Hotel Leipzig, you will need a good ten minutes on foot.

View of the entrance to the Grassi Museum

Grassi Museum

The Grassi Museum is also just a quarter of an hour's walk from the HYPERION Hotel Leipzig. in 1880, the merchant Franz Dominic Grassi bequeathed his fortune to the city of Leipzig, which had the museum built between 1925 and 1929 in the New Objectivity and Art Deco style. Today it houses the Museum of Applied Arts, the Museum of Ethnology and the Museum of Musical Instruments. For a break between exhibitions, the museum café or a tour of the Old St. John's Cemetery behind the museum are ideal.

Gohliser Schlösschen

The Gohliser Schlösschen to the north of Leipzig's Auwald forest is a jewel from the rococo period, built by councillor Johann Caspar Richter in 1755/56. The enclosed garden completes the ensemble. The ballroom can be visited during a guided tour of the Gohliser Schlösschen - or during a concert.

The Gohliser Schlösschen is a 10-minute drive from the HYPERION Hotel Leipzig at the main railway station.

Monument to the Battle of the Nations

If you are staying in Leipzig for more than one night, it is also worth visiting the Monument to the Battle of the Nations. The monumental building was inaugurated on October 18, 1913 to mark the centenary of the Battle of the Nations near Leipzig. With a height of 91 meters, it is one of the tallest monuments in Europe. There are 500 steps to the viewing platform, some of which lead around the dome as a narrow staircase. You can also take the elevator up to the middle platform.

St. Thomas Church

and the St. Thomas Choir

The Thomaskirche church is just a few minutes' walk away. It is the former workplace of Johann Sebastian Bach and home to the internationally famous St. Thomas Choir. The church, which has been rebuilt several times in its history, was consecrated in 1496 and is characterized from the outside by its Renaissance tower. There is a Bach memorial in front of the entrance, which is a popular photo motif.

You can regularly listen to the St. Thomas Boys Choir, which was founded in 1212, at the weekly motets on Fridays and Saturdays. It takes about 15 minutes to walk here from the HYPERION Hotel Leipzig.
