Ritterstraße Guest House
Guest House Ritterstraße 12
Living in the cultural centre of the city
The guest flats at Ritterstraße 12 are located in the heart of the city centre.
The house was built at the beginning of the 1980s on the site of the “Alte Buchhändlerbörse“ (Old Booksellers’ Market) which was completely destroyed during the war.
Located next to the University and St Nicholas Church (Nikolaikirche), the flats place you right in the centre of Leipzig’s cultural life. The Leipzig Opera House and the Gewandhaus, plus well-known cabarets and restaurants, are all nearby and are easy to reach on foot.
