The Brühl in Chemnitz has been renovated, now it needs to be revitalized. The residents and local traders are not lacking in ideas.

Chemnitz – shop deaths on the freshly renovated Brühl in Chemnitz. The new association “Brühl-Boulevard” and the CDU are fighting against the negative trend. With good reason, club chairman Eric Heim (36, Der Fleischladen) knows: “So far, the Brühl has only been renovated. Now it needs to be revived.”

CDU General Secretary Alexander Dierks (35) agrees: “A positive scene district is developing here. We need a round table of politicians, business development and residents. We have to talk about how we can advance Brühl.”

The makers have plenty of ideas. Landlords would have to create more space for retail on the ground floors.

“We need shoes, bags, jewellery, revitalization with bars, a wine shop, a bistro, children’s things, flowers and a good Italian,” enumerates Rita Hoffmann (57, board member).

In addition to “quality food”, Dierks would like specially tailored events: “A second wine festival, medieval market of the Christmas market, simply an experience space like in the center, because Brühl is the center.”

The approximately 30 shops are currently suffering from a lack of customers. “We can change that,” Eric Heim is convinced. “Chemnitzers love their Brühl.”

They hope for even more dealers at Brühl: Eric Heim (36) and Rita Hoffmann (57) from the Brühl-Boulevard association.

Hanka Kliese (42, SPD) is one of them. She enthuses: “I ate ice cream there as a child. Brühl offers a fantastic quality of life and social mix. The offers are good. I wish that people would use them more.”

Kliese relies on the festival of lights on December 3rd, “our Christmas market”. Claudia Bieder (48) from the Brühl office is also proud of the Brühl: “The city has turned the area inside out and created a young, dynamic district.”

She doesn’t think Brühl is portrayed correctly: “The situation is difficult, like everywhere else. But Brühl is in the middle of development.”
