Welcome to the World Championships

Leipzig is looking forward to hosting the fencers from around the world. They can expect thrilling competitions, whileat the same time exploring a pulsating major city in central Germany. Fencing and Leipzig are linked by a reat tradition: In 2003 the International Fencing Federation celebrated its 90th anniversary here, and in 2005 more than 800 fencers competed at the first World Championship held in Leipzig. In addition to many other fencing events, Leipzig hosted the European Championships in 2010.

The city wants to enthrall the participants and guests with highlights again in 2017. Everyone can look forward to our World Championship opening event on July 21.

These World Championships will tie in with the great musical traditions of the Trade Fair town. Johann Sebastian Bach, Richard Wagner, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Robert Schumann and many more composers lived here.

At the opening ceremony of the World Championships members of the world -famous Gewandhaus Orchestra and its Gewandhaus Choir, directed by the Thomaskantor, will perform the cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach "Tönet, ihr Pauken! Erschallet, Trompeten!" (Sound off, you kettledrums! Ring out, trumpets!) at the Arena!
