The old cotton mill in Leipzig is a melting pot for creative professionals. Numerous studios, galleries, workshops, a cinema, several theatres and shops have taken over this large factory site, located four kilometers away from the city centre. As might be expected in this creative environment the Meisterzimmer apartments have a rather unconventional flair. In historic industrial architecture you can stay in  four spacious lofts with charming and extraordinary interiors. You still find many traces of the former use of the rooms, like the basins of the women’s washroom which was converted into a kitchen, old lockers or beds that can be pushed around on trolleys. The lofts offer a lot of free space, but also retreat possibilities through optically separated areas.

  1. Ich bin schon öfter in den Meisterzimmern gewesen und war jüngst mit einer kleinen Gruppen aus Freundinnen und Freunden dort. Alle waren begeistert, vor allem von der einzigartigen Atmosphäre. Das Design, die Kunst darin und das Umfeld sind so eigenwillig und eigenständig, dass wir nachhaltig fasziniert sind!
