Leipzig 2016: a warm welcome for bookworms and goths
This year for the first time the Leipzig Book Fair (17-20 March), aka “Leipzig liest” (Leipzig reads), is celebrating its 25th anniversary by introducing a English language section for international visitors. Not long after, at Whitsun, the 'black catwalk' is back - the Wave Gotik Treffen
(13-16 May), the largest gathering of dark subculture fans in the world, also celebrating its 25th birthday. Some 20,000 strikingly attired visitors come for all kinds of performances and exhibitions. Including a big one about the WGT itself in the City History Museum.
