Kreuzinger People’s Library

The library was built between the years 1909 and 1910 by architect von Loose from Teplice. With its spacious reading room and a lecture hall for 300 people, it was to become another cultural centre in Cheb like the Municipal Theatre. The structure is connected by hipped roofs from three sides and unified by ostensible facades decorated with fantastic Art Nouveau ornaments made of different materials.

(Catalogue 1994, 84)
