The Leipzig Opera Ball

Porsche has been a presenter at the annual Leipzig Opera Ball since 2013. Part of the commitment is the provision of an attractive raffle main prize in the form of a Porsche vehicle. The raffled models always have a specific motto.

Gewandhaus Orchestra

Gewandhaus Orchestra
Classical music is promoted by Porsche in the form of support for Leipzig's Gewandhaus Orchestra. Since the 2011-2012 season Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG has been the global partner for the symphony orchestra's tours and concerts. The cultural partnership between the sports car manufacturer and the prestigious orchestra has now been extended until 2023.

Since 2014, Porsche and the Gewandhaus in Leipzig have been involved together for implementing the charity concert in Rosental which contributes to youth development in Leipzig. The proceeds of the concert support the foundation “Leipzig hilft Kindern”, which help young people in need. This is especially for campaigns and associations located in Leipzig.

„Klassik airleben“ at Rosental
Every year, thousands of picnickers listen with fascination to the sounds of the Gewandhaus Orchestra at the end of the season during "Klassik airleben". "The concert series in the Rosental makes culture accessible and tangible for everyone. Porsche wants to be actively involved in social life as part of the city of Leipzig. It is a matter close to our heart to support "Klassik airleben" as a presenter for the eighth time this year," says Gerd Rupp, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche Leipzig GmbH.

Regional commitment

In addition to partnerships with the Gewandhaus and the Opera, Porsche is also committed to contributing towards the preservation of historically significant locations and buildings in Leipzig. A donation from Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG has contributed towards the restoration of the 'Mendebrunnen' fountain, a prominent landmark in the city which was built between 1883 and 1886 and was badly damaged during the Second World War.

Thanks to the support of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG it has also been possible to restore Saxony's largest church organ - the 152-year old Ladegast organ in Leipzig's St Nicholas' Church with its unique sound qualities. St Nicholas' Church has always been a place of significant historic moments. It was here that Johann Sebastian Bach worked and performed for the first time on a large number of his organ compositions from 1723 to 1750. In the autumn of 1989 the 'Church of the Peaceful Revolution' became the centre from which the movement for German reunification received important political stimulus.

Education and science

Porsche Erlebniswerkstatt

Learn. Experience. Understand.
A wide range of STEM courses at the Porsche Erlebniswerkstatt 

The Porsche Experience Workshop at the "VDI-GaraGe" Technology Centre in Leipzig's Plagwitz district offers exciting courses on the topics of automobile production, mobility of the future and drive concepts. For example, the focus is on what production may look like in the future, how to design mobility sustainably or what automotive engineering and digitalisation have to do with each other. The participants learn how a Porsche is made and what is behind combustion and electric drives. The children and young people will be guided by Porsche Leipzig trainers. In cooperation with the VDI-GaraGe, school classes and after-school groups in grades three to nine as well as children and young people aged eight to 15 can attend the nine courses of the Erlebniswerkstatt. The educational programme in the modern adventure world deals with current topics from the curriculum and practice.

As a team, children and young people can immerse themselves in various projects and deepen their knowledge. All information on offers and course booking can be found at

With the Erlebniswerkstatt, Porsche is further expanding its commitment to education and youth development. The sports car manufacturer is a sponsor of the Saxon state competition "Schüler experimentieren" (Pupils Experiment) and offers insights into the biodiversity of the off-road site at the Leipzig location with the environmental education project "Porsche Safari".



Porsche Safari: a tour of discovery in off-road terrain

Porsche has been active in Leipzig since 2000 - from the very beginning, we have been committed to the preservation of pristine nature and a sustainable grazing concept. Over the years, a unique natural area has been created on a former parade ground: the Porsche Leipzig off-road area. Aurochs, Exmoor ponies, honey bees and numerous wild animals - including hares, deer and pheasants - live here on 132 hectares of natural land. The Porsche Safari is a discovery tour for nature lovers of all ages: together with the Auwaldstation Leipzig, Porsche invites children and families to explore the site and its flora and fauna. Accompanied by an environmental educator, participants will learn exciting details about the life and habits of the off-road inhabitants on a 4-kilometer footpath. In addition to a summer holiday program, there are also programs for families and school classes.
