Leipzig Innenstadt

Where we started

Leipzig Architectours is a documentation about the city-planning development of Leipzig since the beginning of the 1990s. At that time it was five to twelve in the city. Many of the historic buildings were near collapsing. Thanks to the courage of the citizens of Leipzig the city was "rebuilt" in an exemplary manner.

What our aim is

Our architectural video on DVD as a guide to buildings in the city does not exist for any other city. This film is an alternative and supplement to any printed architectural guide. The advantage is the chance to explain architecture more emotionally with excellent pictures than any book could do.

Our target group

Besides architects, art historians and students of related subjects alle citizens of Leipzig and tourists to this wonderful city will benefit from the video. Even people who know Leipzig quite well will find new perspectives as we look close to details at the façades and visit many buildings from inside.

ArchitecTours in future

Leipzig is the first DVD and a prototype of this format. We are already working on new projects for Munich, Hamburg and Berlin. Of course other European cities will follow soon.
