Carlo Ancelotti's men were trailing 4-2 until the 84th minute when Robert Lewandowski scored his second goal of the night to cut the deficit to one.
Alaba's 91st-minute free-kick was added to by a sublime individual effort from Robben in the last minute of injury time, completing an astounding comeback and a display worthy of champions.
In the 29th minute Leipzig got a penalty of their own as Emil Forsberg was tripped by Xabi Alonso Timo Werner converted the spot-kick to restore their lead.
The Poland worldwide has been in fine form this season and that continued today, with Lewandowski netting two of Bayern's five.

Hoeness says he has already personally told Leipzig's billionaire backer, Red Bull's co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz, that RB can only break Bayern's monopoly of the Bundesliga with more experience in their ranks.
But according to Kicker, the Bavarian club is now evaluating the sale of the 19 year old Portuguese midfielder.
Leipzig broke the deadlock just two minutes into the encounter.
"We won't be buying known, expensive stars, instead we will be sticking with our policy of taking young, gifted players, said RB's sports director Ralf Rangnick, who expects to sign around five new players for 2017/18".
At the end of a tumultuous season which has seen Borussia Dortmund endure a terrorist attack and a partially-closed stadium, the club was the subject of more negative headlines this week after news of a rift between coach Thomas Tuchel and CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke became public.
Though he failed to impress during his spell at Manchester City, the German worldwide is arguably one of the best centre-backs in World football and also has a wealth of experience under his belt. Lewandowski is now the top scorer with 30 after his double against Leipzig.
Nevertheless, Leipzig kept their momentum and shocked the visitors again as Werner restored the two-goal lead after nutmegging Bayern goalie Tom Starke from sharp angle with 65 minutes played.
