Our home since 2007
The high-rise building, which was constructed in 1972 as a sectional building of the university, was built according to the designs of the architect Hermann Henselmann, who also received international acclaim as the architect of the Berlin television tower.
In the form of an open book, the building, which was visible over a long distance, was soon also popularly known as the „wisdom tooth“, „university giant“ or „ steep tooth“.
The city high-rise building was the tallest building in Germany in the years 1968 – 1972 and is now ranked 24th in the list.
In 1999 the complete building as well as the exterior facade was renovated and turned into what you find today in the heart of Leipzig. The light grey facade is made of chinese granite and glass.
Today, the university is no longer located in the building. After being sold by the state government, the building now belongs to the U.S. investment bank Merill Lynch, represented by CRE Resolution GmbH.
In 2007 the restaurant areas were redesigned according to the plans of architect Rüdiger Renno and designer Till Brömme. In addition to the restaurant Panorama Tower „Plate of Art“ the Leipzig tourism and marketing GmbH, the GET AG and the electricity exchange EEX are further tenants in the building.
The best way to enjoy the beautiful panorama of Leipzig is on the observation deck on the 31st floor. The entrance fee for the viewing platform is € 5,00 per person.
Our restaurant underneath Panorama Tower „Plate of Art“, is the highest restaurant in Central Germany.
At a height of 120 meters, you can expect not only a fantastic view over the skyline of the trade fair city and when visibility is good far beyond the city limits, but also an offer of exquisite specilities from a varied cuisine.
Let us inspire you!
