X Liebe Gäste,

aufgrund der aktuellen Situation haben wir uns dazu entschlossen, vorerst unser Gasthaus ab 19. März 2020 zu schließen.

Nach 13-monatiger Zwangspause sehen wir uns nach nur drei Wochen wieder dazu veranlasst unsere Türen zu verriegeln. Wann wir den Betrieb wieder aufnehmen werden steht zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt noch nicht fest. Wir halten Sie auf dem Laufenden.

Bleiben Sie gesund und solidarisch!

Ihre Familie Grahl

und das gesamte Team vom Gasthaus Barthels Hof

History

Traditionally at times of the oldest trade fair in Germany Leipzig's city center turned into a huge trading place which attracted traders from all over the world. Inside the passages and “Messedurchgangshöfe” products were stored, presented and sold. Additionally, they were utilized as residences. Goods were piled up, corners were crowded with businessmen, traders, money changers and even rubbernecks.

The courtyard of the town major, Gottfried Barthel, who himself traded colors and colonial products, contained multiple chambers and storage rooms. On several floors they bargained and traded, they discussed business and made new contacts. And the place where the contracts would be properly concluded with a freshly poured beer was Gasthaus Barthels Hof.

The architect George Werner reconstructed Barthels Hof as banking and trading house on behalf of Gottfried Barthel (1747-1750). It is the oldest baroque “Durchgangshof” in Leipzig and is ranked among the most significant sights of town. The restaurant "Gasthaus Barthels Hof" that is located here is known for its regional cuisine and its great tradition.
