Praxisklinik Blaue Stunde

Praxisklinik at night

The medical and architectural concepts of the Praxisklinik am Johannisplatz were developed in 1996/97 on the initiative of doctors Dr. med. Christiane Volkheimer and Dr. med. Susanne Schenk, who were then practicing in Leipzig. They commissioned the development of the project in the selected location on Johannisplatz to the point of applying for planning permission.

Subsequently, the complex was built in two stages of construction by a private investor, Weishaupt Immobilien GbR, on the site formerly belonging to the municipality.

The first practices began working at the end of 2001. The original space was extended for a first time in 2007. A free-standing building was then added inside the Praxisklinik's courtyard during a third stage of building in 2014. This increased the overall effective area of the Praxisklinik am Johannisplatz from 12,500 to 14,600 square metres.
