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.
This apartment is quite literally the crowning jewel of KarLi 66. Perched at the top of the building and spread across 2 floors, as well as a vast rooftop terrace, this apartment’s 166sqm are put to very good use. The lower floor has a bathroom and 3 rooms, as well as a west-facing balcony. Take the spiral staircase upstairs and you find yourself in a huge open-plan kitchen/living room, with another room, bathroom, and another balcony. Continue up and you reach the rooftop terrace, with its sensational views across the city. This is a truly special, unique apartment.
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.
