Steigenberger Grandhotel Handelshof

A new luxury hotel in Leipzig's former trade fair palace - atmospheric and effectively illuminated to suit human perception using lighting tools from ERCO.

A hotel with special ambience - Leipzig's Handelshof, a trade fair and trading palace dating back to 1908-09, has now been transformed by the Steigenberger group into a luxury hotel. The historic façade of the old building hides what was once a trendsetting concrete steel skeleton. The interior devised by hotel and interior designers Markus-Diedenhofen takes up topics typical of Leipzig, such as Goethe's Faust or the book culture. Cooperating with ERCO, the designers developed a perception-orientated lighting concept which gives attention to diverse usage scenarios and contributes to creating an atmospheric lighting design.
