The district of Sellerhausen-Stünz is located about 3 km east of the city centre of Leipzig. This district is framed by the districts Schönefeld in the north, Paunsdorf in the east, Anger-Crottendorf in the south and Volkmarsdorf in the west.

The nearness to the Leipzig centre offers many possibilities to do the everyday things of life with short distances. The attractions such as the Zoo, the Monument of the Battle of Nations and the allotment park Östliche Rietzschke and the Park Arch East are in the immediate vicinity. The district park Rabet and the Volkshain Stünzer Park are also within walking distance. The easily accessible motorway A14 and the central railway station 3 km away guarantee excellent transport connections. It is only a 1 minute walk to the tram station. From there you can reach Augustusplatz and the main station in a few minutes.

On 1 January 1890, the municipality of Sellerhausen with its 7200 inhabitants was incorporated into Leipzig. In the following years, construction work began on four-storey residential buildings with closed-plan housing units on the Wurzelner Strasse and its crossroads. This led to an increasing urbanisation and at the same time to a reduction in agriculture (vegetable cultivation for the supply of Leipzig). In 1892, Sellerhausen was parsed out of the parish of Schönefeld and was henceforth an independent parish. From 1898 to 1900, the Emmauskirche was built according to plans by the Leipzig architect Paul Lange. In the following years, the development of Sellerhausen was not only administratively connected with the development of the city of Leipzig. The agricultural character of the old village centre continued to decline, but was still clearly visible until the years after 1990. This was particularly noticeable in the area around the village street south of the Wurzelner Straße - now called "Zum Kleingartenpark". Rather, however, the industrial sector in Sellerhausen - but also the neighboring districts of Schönefeld and Paunsdorf - increasingly shaped the character of this district. However, Sellerhausen differed from pure inner-city residential areas in its location on the outskirts of Leipzig and the establishment of allotment gardens in the fertile floodplains of Rietzschke.
