Leipzig is popular not just among tourists, as residents old and new find the city and its scenic surrounding countryside well worth exploring and to be an attractive place to live. For example, the lake district of Leipziger Neuseenland, parts of which are still within the District of Leipzig while the rest lies in the Nordsachsen District, offers a fascinating mix of water, cycling and hiking trails, cultural options and historic sites. Following the end of open-pit lignite mining in the area, the many rivers and bodies of water have become an important locational factor for the entire region.
Whether you prefer the cultural amenities of Leipzig or the scenic countryside surrounding it: The quality of living in the prospering towns and communities in Leipzig’s southern gravy belt, such as Böhlen, is every bit as high as it is in city districts like Schleussig and Dösen. They all combine a scenic setting with great transport connections to the growing trade fair and university city.
Böhlen, a town located south of Leipzig, benefits particularly from these advantages. Here, you will find terrace housing on a number of separate and quiet streets, some of them having sizeable front gardens and meadows in their courtyards. The popular residential area is of green and peaceful character. The multi-unit dwellings have two to four entranceways, are generally in a very well-maintained condition and mostly refurbished. The houses divide into flats of 1 to 5 bedrooms and dwelling sizes between 26 and 105 square metres. Depending on the building type, the houses have two to five floors. The flats have either shower- or tub-equipped bathrooms and are hooked up to central gas-fired heating systems. Bicycle parking spaces are available on the grounds.
Leipzig-Schleussig is the perfect address for anyone seeking classy period building quality in an attractive urban location. Located on a quiet, tree-lined residential street in the middle of Leipzig’s popular Schleussig district, this Belle Époque building on Brockhausstrasse will impress you with its historic flair, colourful sash windows and lathe-turned stair handrails. Suitable as homes for singles, couples and families, the flats of 2 to 3 bedrooms measure around 64 to 85 square metres in size and feature lift, balcony or patio as well as a lovely greened communal garden. The district of Schleussig, which lies around two kilometres south-west of the inner city, is surrounded by waterways and parks. Its streets are defined by classy Belle Époque buildings, painstakingly refurbished, and it is unsurprising that the district has become an extremely sought-after residential location.
Sound Infrastructure and Charming Environment
All of the places mentioned have a highly developed infrastructure. Day-to-day needs can be restocked within walking distances because of the dense network of stores, while medical amenities and educational facilities are also right in the area. What distinguishes the condominiums in Leipzig-Schleussig and the apartments in Böhlen and Dösen are, in short, their central locations, their good transport links and their scenic settings.
