The south side of Körnerstraße in Leipzig’s Südvorstadt, between Lößniger Straße (left) and Arthur-Hoffman-Straße (right). As a typical Gründerzeit street front, the Körnerstraße was built during the rapid growth of the city during the industrialisation in the late 19th century. In the backyard of the middle buildings there are still smaller industrial buildings.
Catholic Apostolic Church
The church building of the Catholic Apostolic Church in Körnerstraße 58 stands out from the rest of the street. It was designed by the architect Julius Zeißig and built between 1896 and 1897. The church was designed as a neo-Gothic brick building. After an air raid on 25 March 1945, only the surrounding walls, the basement and the residential building on the left remained. It was not until 1988/89 that the complete reconstruction was completed with the installation of the massive roof.
