After an initial renovation in the late 1990s, recently AN DER MARKTHALLE was completely gutted and extensively renovated. In the process, all the electrics were renewed as well as the heating system. Doors and windows have been replaced in accordance with the latest requirements. All wooden floor coverings are made of local woods and the bathrooms are luxuriously furnished. The careful renovation was rounded off by the installation of an elevator system. Each apartment also has a south-east facing balcony; the top floor apartment even has two terraces. The units also feature intelligent lighting systems and environmentally friendly photovoltaic technology that uses electrical energy to generate electricity and to heat water.
AN DER MARKTHALLE is part of the last remaining coherent Wilhelminian style squares in the immediate city centre of Chemnitz. The particularly well-preserved, lovingly designed street façades with stucco ornaments are striking. Their elegant design refers back to earlier building epochs such as Renaissance or Classicism. Other buildings worth seeing in the immediate vicinity are the historic Chemnitz market hall, the former steam locomotive factory Hartmannhalle, the CityCenter, and the Schmidt-Bank-Passage. Also nearby are the castle pond and the Küchwald forest with its extensive parks, called the "green lung" of Chemnitz. Shops and department stores can be easily reached within a few minutes, while numerous pubs and restaurants cater to every taste.
