    The Domholzschänke is a popular excursion destination in the middle of the Leipzig floodplain forest. Until the 19th century, a hut was used for forestry and hunting purposes on the site of today's restaurant. From 1912 to 1918 the Leipzig scouts were owners of the property.In 1928, next to the hunting lodge, a tourist restaurant called "Domholzschänke" was opened. The name goes back to the domstiftlichen possession of this part of the floodplain forest, which was therefore called "Dömerey wood" and later "Domholz". The restaurant was soon growing in popularity and became a household name in the region's lack of time for the region. The landlady of the Domholzschänke was able to successfully resist the nationalization attempts of the GDR authorities. When, after the end of the GDR, long-distance travel became possible and Domholzschänke lost its importance, it had to cease operations. By non-use, the property decayed in the 1990s. In 2002, the TV movie "Marga Engel cooking in rage" was filmed here, before the site burned down to its foundations in January 2003 due to arson.In 2006, the Domholzschänke was rebuilt and is gaining in popularity due to the renewed importance of local recreation.
