Live in an industrial monument
The Buntgarnwerke's distinctive building was constructed between 1887 and 1895 according to plans by the architects Ottomar Jummel and Pfeiffer & Händel. It was built due to the increasing importance of trade in Leipzig. The very first impression of the listed building complex conveys the splendour and prestige of the former industrial palace.
The clinker façade, in particular, is highly recognisable, with its striking red brick architecture and decorative light natural stone structures. The two-storey glass and iron bridge, which connects the buildings on either side of the White Elster, is just as distinctive. Today, the Buntgarnwerke on the banks of the White Elster houses numerous lofts and furnished apartments.
