Interesting Facts

The launderette "Biela" was opened on 1 November 2005. The launderette´s name stands for Baron Wilhelm von Biela, who operated a collection point for his laundry in these rooms from 1902-1938. The washing machines are electronically controlled. Directly before the start of the wash cycle the laundry´s weight is determined by a mock spin cycle. The machine then uses energy and water accordingly. Spin speed amounts to a 1300 rotations per minute. The minimal residual moisture positively affects the drying duration. The tumble dryers vaporise about 19kg water per hour at highest temperature. Teakwood furniture guarantees comfortable seating.


The wall decoration concept sprung from the creative mind of Leipzig artist Maurice Göldner. He created a wonderful symbiosis of the early 20th century history of these premises, which were used as washhouse and laundry collection point, and the present modern self-service launderette. The good spirits of this place have arisen.
