In the cellars of the old Town hall, this venue has been popular since the 18 th Century. It provides a lively traditional beer hall ambiance with excellent local cuisine at reasonable prices. Beer is excellent and staff were very pleasant despite being busy.

We look forward to welcoming you to the "Großer Keller" and "Historische Weinstuben" restaurants and to the Mephisto Bar in Leipzig's Mädler Passage in the very heart of the city. Enjoy our hospitality in historically unique surroundings and sample a range of finest quality cuisine. We want you to feel completely relaxed when you visit us and hope that you will look back on your visit with fond memories. In order to ensure this, we shall be dispensing entirely with credit card payment as of July 2015. You may be puzzled by this decision at first as it is quite an unusual step for a gastronomy outfit as established as Auerbachs Keller. However, we believe you will appreciate our decision when you find out about why we felt it necessary: according to the police, hundreds of guests fell victim to a "cyber attack" some time ago, in which computer criminals infiltrated our cash register system and obtained credit card information. Those affected faced a great deal of inconvenience, fortunately however, annoying as this may be, no direct financial loss was incurred. In the meantime we have extensively optimised our cash register system with the aid of IT experts, however even these experts are unable to rule out the possibility of a similar attack happening again in the future. We were alarmed and hugely annoyed to hear this, which is why we decided to completely dispense with credit card payment in future. As usual, food and drinks can still be paid for by cash, EC/Maestro card, advance payment or invoice. We look forward to welcoming you in future and will continue to do everything in our means to make sure you enjoy your time here at Auerbachs Keller.
