    There are still many old buildings in the city center. Just open your eyes and enjoy the architecture.

    From 1896 to 1898, the Leipzig entrepreneur Richard Pudor built a new building on the site of a former residential and commercial building to plans by the Berlin architect Albert Bohm (1853-1933). He had previously designed Café Bauer on Roßplatz. The new building was to serve as an exhibition house for the landmark trade fair that was establishing itself during these years. In order to limit the economic risk, a fashion store was initially located on the ground and first floors, and only the upper floors were used as exhibition space.In 1904, the building was extended by the neighboring property in Grimmaische Strasse (No. 7). At this time also the name empire prevailed, apparently with reference to the imperial road, which was a part in the course of the Via Imperii (imperial road). In the 1934 made renovations, the Art Nouveau Neighboring House in the Grimmaischen Strasse (No. 9-11) was connected, which was also built by Albert Bohm.In 1945, the Reichshof was expropriated and became a department store for the officers of the occupying forces stationed in the Soviet occupation zone or GDR. The name "Russenkaufhaus", which is common in Leipzig for the Reichshof, dates back to this period. From the beginning of the 1960s there was a furniture department store.1990/1991, the Reichshof was reconstructed by the great-grandson of the builder and reopened as a department store. The copper sheet roof of the building received the first prize in the competition "The Most Beautiful Copper Works in Germany 1993".

    Beautiful copper work chic the building. The former "Russian department store" is in very good shape today and is a wonderful eye-catcher

    At the corner of Reichsstraße and Grimmaische Straße is the imposing Reichshof. The former trade fair palace with its almost 100-year history is now a listed building.
    It was built between 1896 and 1898 by the Leipzig entrepreneur Richard Pudor according to the plans of the Berlin architect Albert Bohm (1853-1933) (Neo-Baroque). The new building was to serve as an exhibition house for the model fair established during these years.
    The name Reichshof evidently originated in relation to the Reichsstrasse, which was part of the Via Imperii (Imperial Road).
