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 uses its 66sqm ideally, making it feel spacious and comfortable. The large, inviting hallway welcomes you inside, and leads off to all other rooms. The spacious living room looks out onto the popular Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse, while the others face out into the peaceful, green courtyard. The large balcony covers the length of the apartment on this side, and is the perfect place to enjoy a drink in the evening sun.
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.
