The original Augusteum was the main building of Leipzig University. Built in the nineteenth century in a Neo-gothic style, it faced the same square it faces today and had next to it the Paulinum, the university’s chapel. This building lasted for roughly fifty years before being bombed and finally destroyed by the GDR in 1968.
