a historic restaurant at the heart of Leipzig's old city.
"Just like millions of guests before you. Goethe was here, too! Of course! But AUERBACHS KELLER is not primarily famous because Goethe was here, Goethe was here because of an old saying":
„He who travels to the trade markets
of Leipzig without visting
Auerbachs Yard must hold his peace.
It proves: He has not seen Leipzig.“
The inn signs show two scenes from Goethe's drama "Faust I": Faust and Mephisto, Faust and Gretchen. One funny scene in Goethe' s drama plays also in 'Auerbachs Keller'.
On the picture on the right below you see the Mädler- Passage with the entrance to the restaurant. I am sure that Chris and Chad dined in this restaurant, too.
Sorry, I cannot comment today, because I am on way to the Van Gogh exhibition in the Städel Museum in Frankfurt/Main.
