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 46sqm studio apartment is perfectly laid-out, with not a centimetre of space wasted. The living/bedroom takes up half of the apartment, offering a comfortable, spacious living area ideal for relaxing. The kitchen has more than enough space, and the bathroom is large enough for a bathtub. All rooms face east, enjoying the morning sun. The whole effect is a practical yet comfortable apartment, in one of the most popular neighbourhoods in the city.
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.
