Industrial architecture

In the west of Leipzig the Plagwitz district is an industrial heritage site covering an area of approximately 90 hectares, and it is one of a kind. It was the first large-scale industrial area in Germany to be planned from scratch, and it was the heartbeat of Leipzig's industry for 150 years. Now the architecture has been renovated and looks highly impressive against the backdrop of the Karl Heine Canal. The district is a fine example of industrial architecture, with a large number of individual buildings preserved, such as the yarn factory and the former cotton mill Spinnerei.
