Lofts in the heart of Leipzig
Exclusive Lofts in the Graphisches Viertel
Ever since the time of the Holy Roman Empire when the major trading routes Via Regia and Imperii crossed in Leipzig, the city always has been a cultural centre that actively promoted forward thinking in the field of art and science. Some of its famous residents and students include Johann Sebastian Bach, Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Richard Wagner and Friedrich Nietzsche, to name just a few.
The Graphische Viertel proudly looks back onto a long history in publishing. By the 19th century it stood as one of Germany’s major centres of the printing industry, being the base for many famous publishing houses such as Baedeker, das Bibliographische Institut, Gustav Kiepenheuer, Insel Verlag Anton Kippenbergs and influential publishers of mucic like Breitkopf & Härtel, Friedrich Hofmeister and Edition Peters.
During the years of the German Democratic Republic, Leipzig became a major urban centre but the former cultural and economic influence lay dormant. After the reunion, the Leipzig spirit re-awakened and started to boom more vibrant than ever. With its world-famous university and international companies Leipzig once again has become one of the leading cities in Germany .
It is this combination of an influential past and modern atmosphere that provided the inspiration to the design of these loft apartments. Right in the heart of Leipzig, nestled in a quiet side street, urban buzz just a stone throw away from this tranquil retreat, Egelstraβe is the perfect location.
The historical opera house and the train station are in easy reach by foot within 10 minutes. Trendy boutiques invite you for a shopping stroll; schools and public transport are just around the corner. If, after a hard day at work, even the stylish kitchen of your new apartment cannot tempt you to cook, restaurants and bars in the area cater for every taste.
Be as involved with urban life as you wish or withdraw into your own piece of Leipzig’s colourful industrial history.
