Objective of the Leipziger Notenspur (Leipzig Music Trail)

Segments of a steel strip weave its way on the ground along the route of the Notenspur (Music Trail) through Leipzig's city centre, connecting the most important homes and haunts of numerous prominent composers. On foot from Telemann, Bach and Mendelssohn via Schumann and Wagner to Grieg, Mahler and Reger - many celebrated musicians and composers have left their mark on the city.
The motivation to create an experience-orientated tour was the travesty of the multitude of surviving sites relating to famous composers in Leipzig - a wealth second only to that of Vienna -
on the one hand and their obscurity, despite their potential for World Cultural Heritage status, on the other. Unique to Leipzig, however, is the close proximity of the most significant of these locations to one another, enabling the exploration of over 300 years of musical history in the course of a stroll through the city.

In order to ensure that the Leipziger Notenspur is accessible and attractive to all, it has been designed to be experience-orientated and stimulating for all age groups (see Audio Guide System (Audio-Leitsystem) ). Look here at the mainfolder
