The „Kleines Joachimthal“ is a residential and commercial building with a long history. Built about 1606, this baroque house is situated in a closed central city area, not far from the Marktplatz, in the immediate vicinity of the Coffee Baum, the Germany´s oldest café. The name of the house derives from Joachimsthal, an area in Bohemia. The silver extracted there was traded in particular in Leipzig. There are historic elevators, wonderful old tiles and white glazed clinker at the former Handelshof. The construction was refurbished in line with heritage requirements in 2012. The house with four full floors (ground floor to the third upper floor), an attic floor and a basement comprises a total area of about 4,500 m². You can find gastronomy spaces on the ground floor as well as hostel and office spaces on the upper floors. There are only residential apartments on the attic floor. The house is accessed via three staircases.
