    "The City-Hochhaus Leipzig is a high-rise on Augustusplatz in Leipzig and with 142.0 meters (total height with antenna support 155.40 meters) and 34 floors the second highest high-rise in the new federal states and the highest in the city.

    Due to the three long, slightly inwardly curved longitudinal sides with an elevated narrow side, the shape of the building from the street perspective can be interpreted as an open book. Because of its initial use, the names Uniriese, wisdom tooth or steep tooth emerged in the vernacular.

    In the list of skyscrapers in Germany, the city skyscraper is in 24th position. "

    The skyscraper was built from 1968 to 1972 according to designs by the architect Hermann Henselmann as part of the redesign of the university campus on what was then Karl-Marx-Platz and was the tallest skyscraper in Germany when it was completed. It was used as a university building from 1973. After German reunification, the University of Leipzig had been considering selling the skyscraper since 1994, as the estimated renovation costs of 240 to 300 million DM were considerable. It was not until four years later, in May 1998, that the rectorate of the university finally decided to move out of the high-rise. The sales efforts failed for several years.

    In the years 1999 to 2002 the city skyscraper was completely renovated, the facade was clad with granite and glass.

    A beautiful viewing platform and a restaurant where you pay the view is there. The lights in the rooms sometimes show them in the evening, eg the 89 for the turn of the year.

    The City-Hochhaus Leipzig is on the southwestern edge of Augustusplatz in Leipzig. The 34-storey high-rise is a landmark of the city and at 142.0 meters (total height with antenna support: 155.40 m) the tallest building in Leipzig. When it was completed in 1972, until the completion of the Jentower (144.5 m) it was also the tallest building in Germany and is the second tallest in the new federal states after the Jentower.

    On the 31st floor there is a viewing platform on the roof at a height of 120 meters. It provides a good overview of the Leipzig area and is therefore a popular tourist destination.

    Due to the three long, slightly inwardly curved longitudinal sides with an elevated narrow side, the shape of the building from the street perspective can be interpreted as an open book. Because of its initial use by the University of Leipzig, the name Uniriese came into being in the vernacular.
