"Art Nouveau Quarter in the North of the City" Zwickau Things to Do Tip by Kathrin_E

Zwickau Things to Do: 37 reviews and 140 photos

Like all those industrial cities Zwickau grew a lot during the decades around 1900. First it was historism but then art nouveau became the style of fashion. A large quarter North of the city centre was covered with townhouses and villas during that era before World War I.

Since the reunification a lot of renovation work has been completed. Most of these houses are in excellent shape now. There are some gaps in between due to World War II air raids and neglect during the socialist era, but all in all the quarter is well preserved and worth a closer look.

How to get there: Tram 4 or 7 to "Kurt-Eisner-Straße".
My photos were taken in Kurt-Eisner-Straße on the way from the tram stop to Horch-Museum and back, which takes you right through the art nouveau quarter. These two attractions can easily be combined.
