The Meyersche Villa can be found in the middle of the popular, middle-class Bach district of Leipzig. The district is named after the famous composer Johann Sebastian Bach. It is a residential area in the outer west suburb of Leipzig. The district is bordered on three sides by spacious parks and at the western end by the flood plains of the White Elster.

The Meyersche Villa was built directly next to the flood basin and offers often a view to the training of the Leipzig water sportsman.

Due to its architectural importance, the district has a special monument preservation protection. Important Leipzig representatives of historicism such as Max Pommer, Oscar Mothes and Arwed Roßbach built remarkable villas, especially in the western area.

Next to the Meyersche Villa is the world-famous St. Thomas School of Leipzig. The school is one of the most powerful and traditional educational institutions in central Germany.
