Baumwollspinnerei

Arts Centre in Leipzig

With about 100 resident artists, this sprawling industrial site, which grew around a 19th-century cotton mill, is a hub for contemporary art collectors, dealers and dedicated enthusiasts, although less so for average travellers. Yet, as a larger-than-life landmark in Plagwitz, it is worth snooping around – perhaps you'll find the next Botticelli in a scruffy workshop.
