The mentioning of the Fasskeller (barrel cellar) in Goethe's classic work "Faust" makes it arguably the most famous restaurant in Germany. Today the room is exactly as generations of guests before and after Goethe's time knew it.
Probably the most famous guest of Auerbachs Keller, Goethe is honoured with the gothic vaulted "Goethe-Keller". His favourite seat remains unknown, however, which means that every guests can believe that they are sitting in his former place.
In order to protect himself from his enemies in Leipzig, Luther would favour secure places on his visits to to the city, such as the Auerbach house. The small historic restaurant still radiates a feeling of security and comfort to this day.
In the "Alt-Leipzig" guests are transported back to an age that was already referred to as "the good old days" over one hundred years ago. The vaulted niches contain original paintings executed from historic originals by students at the college of art. Unfortunately, their names are no longer known.
