A panorama of the northern facade front of the Troendlinring in Leipzig. It is situated on the inner city circle of Leipzig, opposite the tram station Goerdelerring and the commercial complex “Höfe am Brühl“. We see a part of the outward side of the Leipziger Ring (Leipzig city circle), which was the setting for the 1989 Leipzig monday demonstrations that ultimately led to the fall of the wall in Berlin. This street block includes the evangelic reformed church of Leipzig (right side), the hotel Fürstenhof (middle) and the former Ring-Messehaus left of the hotel. It was used for trade fairs until 1992 and with an area of 20.000 square metres it was the biggest innercity trade fair building in the world. Meanwhile it is being rebuild into a hotel. In 2012 it was back in public focus for a moment, when a graffiti crew sprayed an overdimensioned “RCS” bombing onto the facade, which led to an even bigger facade graffiti by a rivalling group on the nearby former Robotron building. Media picked this up as the Leipzig Graffiti-War. However the RCS Graffito was visible only some days until the owner veiled the facade again.
There are more Leipzig streets we photographed in our archive, which you can find by yellow markers on our worldmap. In case you are interested in us creating a streetline montage for one of these streets please contact us.
