Leipzig Off The Beaten Path: 43 reviews and 69 photos
This "small castle or palace" (which is what "Schloesschen" means) is not far from the Schiller House. It was built in 1754-1756 as the summer residence of a city councilman and merchant named Johann Caspar Richter. It is now used as a venue for cultural events.
The Leipzig Opera puts on monthly recitals here on Sunday afternoons, each featuring a different ?singer from the ensemble. Today for instance (April 17, 2005) there is a recital by the American tenor Stanley Jackson, who is one of the newer ensemble members.
The address is Menckestrasse 23. Take the tram # 4 (get off at Menckestrasse) or # 12 (get off at Fritz-Seger-Strasse).
