The Petersstrasse connects the market square of Leipzig with the Wilhelm-Leuschner-Square and is one of the main shopping streets in Leipzig. Historically it was central to the Petersquarter and the old St. Peter’s Church was to be found here, as well as the Peter’s Gate (Peterstor) at its southern end. The Petersstrasse was part of the Via Imperii, which crossed the Via Regia in Leipzig. We see a part of the west side of the street between the newly errected Petersbogen at the left end and the Haus Marquette (Hugendubel) with St. Thomas Church in the back, on the right.
Other important buildings within this view include the Haus”Drei Könige” (Three Kings – on the left), the Concentrahaus, the Haus “Zum Grönländer” (both in the middle) and the Petershof (further to the right).
