Looking for luxurious, opulent lamps? A chandelier for your salon at home? :-) Go to Wurzen and get one!
I knew that the Leuchten Manufactur in Wurzen built the huge chandelier in the reconstructed Semperoper in Dresden in the 1980s, the story with all the hassle because of shortage of material was in every documentary on the reconstruction of that opera house. On my walk through Wurzen's alleys I was still surprised, though, when I stumbled upon this manufacture right in the old town - you hardly notice the building, there is not much advertising in public.
The manufacture was founded in 1862, their references are impressive: Places in Saxony have chandeliers from Wurzen, of course, like Pfund's Dairy shop in Dresden, the University and the High Court (Bundesverwaltungsgericht) in Leipzig, the Reichstag in Berlin, the Eremitage in St. Petersburg ... It's probably beyond the budget of average tourists in Wurzen, I guess :-)
