Highlights
  • Learn the eerie stories from Leipzig's past
  • Enjoy our "poor sinner's sip" (a kind of liquor)
Full description
No matter whether you immerse yourself in the nocturnal Leipzig of the cordial executioner's wife Helma, the patented cleaner Pauline or the affable Leipzig Lola, the "poor sinner's sip" on the way will do you good to easily digest the naked facts of the past and present.

As a singer in the Leipzig of the golden 20s, Lola knows a lot about the "big business in the evening" - after all, Leipzig had 46 brothels and 220 relevant massage salons at that time. But Pauline is also aware of the wishes of merchants and trade fair guests for a successful trading day. She watches the small sins in the city (also fashion sins of celebrities) very closely and catches many a gossip under her mighty hat.

In the days of Helma, the executioner's wife, Leipzig was a stronghold of drunkenness, gluttony and above all fornication at night. She was very close to the action and today she openly talks about the unbelievable.
