As you walk down Alte Strasse, beneath a canopy of flowering trees, your path leads you to the magnificent corner house at no.5. Even between the lavishly renovated façades of the neighbouring houses, this beautiful building catches the eye with its elaborate details, fine tiling and huge oriel tower. When you enter the building, built in 1905, you can see the finely stuccoed murals and beautifully refurbished staircase. This level of aesthetic detail continues into the freshly renovated apartments, with newly laid, high-quality parquet flooring, and underfloor heating throughout the building. The courtyard-facing balconies promise al-fresco breakfasts and sunset cocktails, while the bay windows facing the street will soak up the sunshine and brighten up your day.
Once the home of heavy industry, today Plagwitz is the epicentre of Leipzig's cultural and creative renaissance. It is the place where all the myths about Leipzig as an up-and-coming city come true. It's not just the unmistakable look, that mix of charmingly dilapidated industrial spaces and brilliantly remodelled residential buildings. In Plagwitz today young and old, rich and poor, bourgeois and alternative live together harmoniously. This is a true neighbourhood. Anyone who lives or works here wants to play an active role in shaping the district - whether as the founder of one of the many innovative start-ups or as a committed resident who supports local cafés and galleries. Art and lifestyle, culture and cuisine, creativity and serenity meet here and exemplify all the qualities of urban life.
