Federal Administrative Court – Bundesverwaltungsge

The Federal Administrative Court is one of the five federal supreme courts of Germany.
The Bundesverwaltungsgericht has its seat at the former Reichsgericht (Imperial Court of Justice) building in Leipzig.
It was the first impressive building we saw after parking our car close to it. We didn’t know what was it but guessed it was a very important federal administrative building.

Leutzsch-Town Hall

Leutzsch is one of the oldest parts of Leipzig. It was founded in 11 century by Sorbs under the name Luszh (means Place of Meadows and Swamps). In 19th century Leutzsch transformed from a little village with 270 inhabitants to an industrial town with about 12.000. Because of Leipzig's growing Leutzsch became a quarter in 1929.
I'm sorry but I do not know when Leutzsch's Town Hall was built.

The Renaissance Oriel

The beautiful renaissance oriel on the corner Grimmaische Straße/Nikolaistraße is a reconstruction. The house was destroyed during the war, a new one built in its place, and a copy of the old oriel attached to it. This architectural detail marks one of the busiest corners in the city centre.

Romanus House

The city palace, built in 1703, shows baroque splendour. The owner was Franz Conrad Romanus, a close ‘friend’ of Elector August the Strong who was granted the position as Mayor of Leipzig. To finance his costly new home he sold uncovered bonds in the name of the city… and was caught, which got him a less comfortable home in the prison at Königstein fortress.

Location: corner Katharinenstraße/Brühl

Riquet House

The ‘house with the elephants’ was built in 1909. The architecture is a mix of art nouveau and orient. The owners were merchants who traded goods from China and the Middle East. The café on the ground floor serves house-made goodies in historical ambience.

Kroch-Hochhaus

Leipzig’s first skyscraper, eleven storeys high, was built in 1927/28 by the Jewish banker family Kroch. The bell on the roof, rung by two bronze men with hammers, has become a landmark. The Latin inscription praises w*rk: Omnia vincit labor (labour conquers/wins everything - there are different interpretations possible).

Gründerzeithäuser

Gründerzeithäuser are buildings built around 1900. There is no English name for this word. It means "Founder Year's Buildings" if I translate it word by word.
Leipzig has the most Gründerzeithäuser in Germany. Most of them are completly renewed and give Leipzig a special flair of a 19th century city as well as a modern metropolis.
Note: Leipzig offers high comfort and very low rents. I highly recommend to visit the district of "Waldstrassenviertel" in the west of Leipzig.

Romanushaus

Named after the former Mayor of Leipzig, Franz Conrad Romanus. Built by Gregor Fuchs in 1701/04 for Mayor Romanus, who used funds from the city coffers to pay for the building. When this was discovered, he was sent to the Koenigstein Fortress near Dresden by August dem Starken (August the Strong) where he died.
The great German playwright Friedrich Schiller was known to frequent the cafe which now occupies part of the building.

Kroch Tower

Leipzig's first highrise was built in 1927/28 as a banking house by the Kroch brothers, inspired by the clock-tower in St. Mark's Square in Venice. The Kroch Tower today houses the University exhibition centre.
In 2001 the two figures on the top has been restored and make the clock striking with their hammers every 15min.
