Neo-Byzantine garrison building from 1869. For the time being modern equipped with central heating, steam kitchen and separate living and sleeping quarters, it offered accommodation for 1,200 soldiers.In 1960, VEB Kommunale Wohnungsverwaltung took over the property with 120 tenants. The former barracks were listed as historical monuments in 1983 during the »GDR« era. Since, as everywhere in existing socialism, there was a lack of necessary capital and will, the construction rapidly declined. The turnaround could change nothing here for the time being. In 1997, the barracks were closed for use and have since been empty.The association Friends of the Mandaukaserne Zittau e. V. wants to preserve the unique historical and architectural monument of the city of Zittau and to provide it with a useful use.
