The city palace, built in 1703, shows baroque splendour. The owner was Franz Conrad Romanus, a close ‘friend’ of Elector August the Strong who was granted the position as Mayor of Leipzig. To finance his costly new home he sold uncovered bonds in the name of the city… and was caught, which got him a less comfortable home in the prison at Königstein fortress.
