Leipzig Cotton Mill

Local nameLeipziger Baumwollspinnerei
LocationSaxony, Germany

The Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei is an industrial site in Leipzig, Germany. Parts of this 10-hectare site in the district of Lindenau are used today by art galleries, studios and restaurants.

Founded in 1884, the business developed into the largest cotton mill in continental Europe over the next quarter century. During this time, an entire industrial town with over 20 factories, workers' housing, kindergartens and a recreational area, grew in western Leipzig. The mill reached its maximum extent in 1907, with 240,000 spindles processing cotton across a working area of about 25 acres. Up to 4,000 people worked there, until production of thread was halted in 1993 following the reunification of Germany several years earlier.
