It is an impressive, brick and stone building on a rectangular plan. It stylistically refers to Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Three pediments with wavy sides are especially beautiful.
The building of the former hotel "Admiralspalast", located at Wolności Street, is considered one of the landmarks of Zabrze. This five-storey building was erected close to the train station in 1924-1928. In the heyday of the hotel, there was a Bavarian beerhouse on the ground work, a restaurant, a café and a ballroom on the first floor, and above hotel rooms. On the roof, an open air dance platform was arranged. After WW2, the hotel changed its name for "President", "Foreman" and "Monopoly".
The housing estate "Zandka" is part of the complex of
buildings that were originally associated with the former
Donnersmarck Ironworks in Zabrze (later Huta Zabrze).
