Tour of Bleichert Werke as part of Leipzig Industrial Culture Days
140 years ago, the Bleichert Werke in Gohlis was founded as the first and largest wire rope factory in the world. After an eventful history, the huge industrial ruin lay fallow for decades.
After several years of construction, the revitalization of the area has resulted in a modern and lively urban district that has retained its industrial charm. Visitors can view the ensemble of industrial buildings, some of which are listed, renovated in detail and converted for residential use, supplemented with modern architecture for office and commercial use, in all their glory on September 8 at 10 a.m.
