One of the famous Leipzig Arcades runs through Kretschmanns Hof. This serves as a direct shortcut to Hainstraße.
The Kretschmanns Hof office building, which was completed in 1912, underwent restoration in 2010. The arcade was given a glass roof that is visually integrated into the spacious, white tiled courtyard.
It is connected to the "Blauer und goldener Stern“ building and its rectangular courtyard by a passageway. Since the restoration work was completed, the cabaret "Leipziger Pfeffermühle" has also been housed in the basement of Kretschmanns Hof.
