The Mendelsson museum is informative and modern. Though located in an old building. It is near Augustus platz. The building is well renovated and many floors are original ones as well as the staircase. This is a good example of an modern museum.

Good stop to see how the Mendelssohns lived back in the day. Opportunities to listen to a lot of music but we were on a group tour so got what we could.

For anyone enjoying classical music, this is a must. Mendelsohn was a brilliant composer and accomplished artist. Extremely well traveled and liberally minded for his time

The house is a few blocks east of the Nicolaikirche, making it an easy walk from the Thomaskirche and city center. A climb up the original staircase takes you to the rooms where the Mendelssohn family lived. His study is reconstructed and decorated accordingly, and...More
