"Historicism and Art Nouveau – Leipzig Architecture 1871-1918"

Nowadays. Leipzig possesses a closed stock of buildings from the years between 1871 and 1918, more than any other city in Germany. This was reason enough for the "Kulturstiftung Leipzig", the "Passage-Verlag" publisher and the Leipzig Tourismus und Marketing GmbH to publish a corresponding architectural city map.

The map depicts the most beautiful buildings and monuments from the periods of Historicism and Art Nouveau. It contains a total of 82 selected houses and building ensembles which is by no means all Leipzig has to offer. 

Of the approximately 15,000 cultural monuments in Leipzig, about 10,000 are from the Gründerzeit, or Wilhelminian, period. The arcades and trade fair halls in the city centre are particularly impressive. Specks Hof, the Städtisches Kaufhaus or the oldest surviving mall in Germany, the Mädler-Passage, are just a few of many examples. The historicist residential buildings, which dominate large parts of the city, the industrial buildings in Plagwitz and the publishing houses east of city centre are also worth seeing.

The architectural city map is available for € 4.95 in bookshops and in the Tourist Information Centre (Katharinenstraße 8).
