Museum of Fine Arts

Celebrating the contemporary way

Leipzig's Museum of Fine Arts is a glass cube in the centre of the city – stylish, modern, unconventional. The building with its collection of major works of art features an interplay of light and shadow. During the day we invite you to take a break from the art in our Café IDEE. The open atmosphere of the spacious Museum of Fine Arts makes this the ideal venue for your event. Michaelis will create the perfect setting for your occasion, with top quality catering, professional service and efficient organisation – right down to the illuminated facade.

Events, banquets, galas in the centre of Leipzig

In the extensive Museum of Fine Arts building, affectionately referred to by local residents as the 'picture museum', your presentations, banquet or gala will create a modern and stylish impression. As an additional highlight you can combine your event with a guided tour of the galleries or a reception in the foyer. With catering, professional service and efficient organisation by Hotel Michaelis, your event will be a real highlight - and not only in the nightly illumination of the museum's fascinating glass facade.
