Moritzbastei Foundation


Moritzbastei Leipzig is managed by The Moritzbastei Betriebs GmbH on behalf of the Moritzbastei Foundation. This University-run foundation was established in May 1993, to facilitate the continual use of Moritzbastei as a youth and student centre.

The rector of the University presides over the foundation.  The board of trustees, which controls the work done by the foundation, is comprised (amongst others) of representatives from the city of Leipzig, the Free State of Saxony, and the student body.

The Moritzbastei Betriebs GmbH is economically independent.  It is beholden to the preservation of Moritzbastei as a historical edifice and as a forum for cultural encounters in Leipzig's student life.
