A street/tramline panorama of the Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse in Leipzig between the Fichtestrasse on the left side and the Hardenbergstrasse on the right side. The park we see on the right is the Heinrich-Schuetz-Platz and the street crossing in the middle is the Steinstrasse. Not typical for our panorama images we only see the upper half of the buildings architecture here, the street level is completely hidden by trams of the Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe (Leipzig public transport service). This part of the Karli (short form of Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse) developed during the building boom in the late 19th century, when the city expanded to the south.
This mixed panorama montage was created for the year exhibition of the Kulturfabrik Leipzig which had a theme based around the Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse. Being the most important street in southern direction, the Karli is used by three tramlines, which is why the trams generally dominate the image of the street (next to its pubs and nightlife). The Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe (LVB) still use old Tatra-trams, but also produced their own trams via the former subsidiary company LeoLiner and additionally have further modern trams in usage. This diversity of tram types is partially depicted in this panorama as well.
