As you step into the immaculate hallway with its red walls and white stucco accenting, you begin to see what makes this property truly special. The apartments themselves feature intricate parquet flooring and practical layouts, and many also offer balconies. They range in size from studio apartments to 4-bedrooms, with a wide variety of floor plans. Despite its age, this is a very modern-feeling property, perfect for students and young professionals.
Despite being on the lower-ground floor, this wonderful apartment certainly does not lack for light. Wide French doors stretch the length of the wall looking onto the balcony, and out into the back garden of the property, making the living room perfect for entertaining. And the rest of the apartment is no less inviting; the bathroom, kitchen and cosy bedroom offer everything you could need.
The neighbourhoods to the south of Leipzig’s centre have a reputation for being quirky and colourful, trendy and a little eccentric. While there is some truth to this, it is by no means the whole story. KarLi, as Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse is popularly known, is the epicentre of student and expat life in Leipzig, a thriving boulevard of cool bars and restaurants. Yet there is also the beautiful Clara-Zetkin-Park nearby, and cobbled side-streets lined with restored Altbau apartment buildings.
