Experience Leipzig,
the city of music


Win a classical music weekend for two in Leipzig

Known as the city of music, Leipzig's musical heritage is truly exceptional. This is the city where great composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy are inextricably linked to, and Richard Wagner, the most influential composer of the high romanticism, was born in the city and received his musical training there.

And musical history is still being written in Leipzig today, with world-famous ensembles performing at authentic places throughout the city, whether in the Gewandhaus concert hall, in St. Thomas Church or the Leipzig Opera. The city's musical legacy also comes to life in the many museums.

And now Classic FM and the Leipzig Tourist Office are giving you the chance to experience Leipzig's music for yourself. One lucky listener will win an incredible trip for two to the city, with travel and accommodation included, as well as tickets for an evening performance of 'Tannhäuser' at the Leipzig Opera House.

To enter, simply answer the question below.

Leipzig Opera

'Oper Leipzig' has become one of the most prominent opera houses in Germany, and traces its establishment to the year 1693, making it the third oldest civilian music theatre in Europe.
The opera house on Augustusplatz was opened in 1960 with a performance of Wagner's 'Meistersinger von Nürnberg'. In 2018, it honours the famous son of the city by presenting a Wagner festival in spring and premiering 'Tannhäuser and the Minstrel's Contest at the Wartburg' on March 17, 2018.
To celebrate Wagner's contribution to the city of Leipzig, Classic FM and the Leipzig Tourist Office are offering one lucky winner the chance to experience Wagner's work in his hometown.
