Hofmannsberg winery

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The original seat of the Hofmannsberg winery , which today consists partly of a residential complex at Weinbergstraße 48 / 48a and partly of the vineyards of the winery, is located in the Oberlößnitz district of the Saxon town of Radebeul , not far from Haus Albertsberg or the former Bilz sanatorium . It is within the conservation area Historic vineyard landscape Radebeul . Today's residential complex consists of a former winegrower's house and manor house (Hofmanns Palais). The listed buildings are located at the foot of the Hofmannsberg vineyard with its vineyard terraces that still exist today. Before Hofmannsberg , the vineyard was called Gaslo .

The buildings of the old winery are located directly in the street line on the northern side of Weinbergstrasse. The former winegrower's house is on the left in the street view, with a gable facing the street. The mansion is on the right, with one eaves side parallel to the street. Due to the hook-shaped floor plan of the winery, which is angled to the right, there is an inner courtyard, which is closed off by an access portal with mighty sandstone pillars, according to the monument topography from the years 1903/1905.

Herrenhaus (Weinbergstrasse 48a)

The three-story residential building ( 51 ° 6 ′ 37.2 ″  N , 13 ° 40 ′ 29.3 ″  E ) was built as a country house with a tiled hipped roof . It has a still recognizable older cornice structure, supplemented and shaped by a younger ornamental plaster with inlaid red tiles in the style of Art Nouveau . The windows are accompanied by folding shutters .

A two-story wooden veranda is in the courtyard.

Winzerhaus (Weinbergstrasse 48)

The originally single-storey, now two-storey former winegrower's house stands over a hook-shaped floor plan.

The gable side of the south-facing wing with a gable roof and dormers extends to the street. There the right corner of the building is constructed like a loggia with a column. Under this part of the building there is a large vaulted cellar. In front of the corner of the transverse wing is a three-storey stair tower with a three-fold concave curved helmet . On the upper floor facing the street in front of it there is a wooden balcony under a canopy . Art Nouveau is particularly evident on the tower and the loggias.

On the upper floor of the transverse wing to the north is a plaque with the date 1836 and the initials WLH , which refer to the renovation by Wilhelm Ludwig Hofmann.


The establishment of the vineyard goes back to the time after the Thirty Years War , more precisely to the second half of the 17th century. On the map by Hans August Nienborg from the year 1714/15 there is an entry of a house at the place of the winegrower's house on the left, a secretary Schubert is entered as the owner. On the construction side, the barrel vaulted cellar and parts of the sandstone walls on the ground floor of the winegrower's house could match this entry. The Radebeul house index lists a mountain and winegrower's house in the aforementioned location from 1729 , to which a single-storey farm wing was added on the northern side in the 18th century.

The files list different owners for the following years: 1729 Joh. Fr. Freislebe (n) von Grohlich, 1732 Teuffert, for the years from 1734 Gutkäse und Wiedemann, in 1781 as heiress Frau Wiedemannin, 1791 Frau Hofbibliothekar Daßdorfin geb. Wiedemannin, 1803 Mrs. Müllerin born. Wiedemannin, from 1809 Braune and then Rudolph.

Karl Julius Hofmann gives Gaslo as the former vineyard name in his Meißner Netherlands and 267  square rods as size 4  acres (corresponding to 2.7 hectares).

The eponymous Hofmann family can be found from 1826 with an entry by W. L. Hofmann, followed by E. L. and M. L. Hofmann in 1886, again by M. L. Hofmann in 1888 and by A. L. Hofmann in 1912. W. L. Hofmann was the pharmacist Wilhelm Ludwig Hofmann, who initiated the construction work in 1836: The tablet bearing this date is now on the upper floor of the north wing of the winegrower's house. While the monument topography connects this with the renovation of the winegrower's house, Lohse connects this with the construction of the Biedermeier , two-story mansion. After that, the plaque was originally placed there and repositioned during the major renovations in 1903. In the Radebeul house index, the mansion is listed as Hofmanns Palais from 1846 at the latest, in the Meißner Netherlands from 1853 the new palace is already described as three-story. According to the topography of the monument, the construction of the mansion is only scheduled for 1865 [probably wrongly]. The engraving on the left from around 1850/1865 documents the fabric of the building at that time. In 1882 the mansion received a veranda extension, which is not yet shown on the engraving.

From 1903, the entire assembly group was fundamentally rebuilt by the Leipzig merchant and banker Max Ludwig Hofmann, presumably as a result of the vineyards abandoned by the phylloxera disaster . With a building application from November 1903, the Leipzig architect Adalbert Friedrich, who carried out the project, submitted his designs for additions and changes in the spirit of Art Nouveau . After approval in 1904, the construction inspection of the residential buildings, which had been converted into two rental villas, took place in April 1905. With the increase, the urban planning maximum number of residential units was reached at this point.

The architect Martin Hammitzsch lived there around 1920 , while his nearby domicile, Haus in der Sonne, was being converted.

In 1945 the private property of Alma Hofmann, who lives in Detroit USA, was expropriated for reasons unknown at the moment and came into municipal possession. In 2011 it was owned by the Radebeul municipal ownership company, but was to be sold. In the last few decades, ensemble members of the Saxony State Theaters have often lived in the residential buildings that have been under monument protection since 1991 and are now in need of renovation .
