History of Brandis Palace

We are happy that you are interested in the history of Brandis Palace.

From ancient documents the history of Brandis Palace can be traced back to the 12th century when it was used as a manor. The origins of Brandis Palace, seen from its current appearance, can be found in the 18th century. Between 1724 and 1727 Otto Wilhelm von Bodenhausen engaged the famous Baroque architect David Schatz to plan and build a palace that should surpass every other in western Saxony at that time.

Remaining unfinished during the 18th century, Baron Friedrich von Pentz completed the construction in the mid of the 19th century at the same time when he extended the grounds of the park. Noteworthy are the plantations of exotic trees and shrubs e.g. the pumpwood, the copper beech and the champion oak originally descending from Northern America. Furthermore, Baron Friedrich von Pentz induced the creating of precious sculptures and statuary which represent the cultural importance of Brandis Palace. Among them, the mausoleum, built in 1854, the water reservoir tower, built in1884, and several lion sculptures are the most famous and outstanding ones.

The cultural diversity and importance of Brandis Palace was honoured with the enrolment to the Saxon monument register in1941. With the Second World War coming to an end, a battalion of the US-Army seized Brandis Palace to become a garrison before the Red Army took over, expropriated the former owner Major Otto Busse and used it as a commandant’s office and later on as a hotel. From 1968 on Brandis Palace was owned by the City of Leipzig which repurposed the palace to become a retirement and nursing home.

With the closure of the retirement and nursing home in 2003 Brandis Palace fell into a deep sleep lasting almost one decade. By renovating both wings in 2006 and including sophisticated flats and maisonettes in them, parts of the Brandis Palace flourished again. However, the main building remained slumbering. It was not until 2012 when the current lord discovered the cultural heritage and potential of Brandis Palace and decided to restore the Palace, the Palace grounds and the gatehouse completely. Since then, Brandis Palace is undergoing repairs carried out by carpenters, masons and restorers- all masters of their crafts.
