Vacation in Leipzig

Location and orientation

The Saxon city as a holiday destination

The city of Leipzig is located in the Free State of Saxony, about 32 kilometres from the city of Halle (Saale) in Saxony-Anhalt. From Dresden you need about one and a half hours by car to get to Leipzig. The district of Nordsachsen borders on the city centre in the north. Then it's about 190 kilometers to Berlin.

Branched river landscapes in the middle of Leipzig

Leipzig lies at the confluence of the Pleiße, Parthe and Weiße Elster rivers, which have a decisive influence on the cityscape and form the so-called Leipziger Gewässerknoten. For this reason there is a large alluvial forest area along the rivers, which over the centuries has still preserved a rare flora and fauna and in Europe represents a rare example of the combination of alluvial forest and urban area. Since lignite was mined around Leipzig in the past, there are now numerous lakes in the surrounding area which are used as recreational areas by residents and visitors alike.

View the city from above

There are also a few surveys in Leipzig. The city's mountains include the 163 metre high Galgenberg and the Monarch's Hill with 159 metres of altitude. In addition, the Seehausen, the Liebertwolkwitz and the Fockeberg are among the city elevations that offer fantastic views.

Things to know

All roads lead to Leipzig

Despite its urban location, you can also use the surroundings of Leipzig for hiking or cycling. For the city in Saxony is the crossroads or end point of famous routes, such as the road of brown coal, the Luther Trail, the Elster Cycle Trail or the Berlin-Leipzig Cycle Trail.

Tasting the delicacies of the river

Local specialities include crayfish at the top of the menu, combined with crab butter and bread dumplings. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the lark was a popular ingredient for pies. Today, the Leipziger Lerche is a short pastry filled with marzipan, which was developed by a baker after the ban on hunting singing birds. Also try the beer speciality Gose and the caraway liqueur Leipziger Allasch. These drinks are often mixed together and served as so-called "umbrellas".

The city of music steeped in history

Numerous musicians and composers once lived in Leizpig. The houses in which they lived and worked have been opened to the public.

You can get an impression of how musicians lived and composed in the past in Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy's house where he lived and died. Also worth seeing are the Schumann House, the birthplace of Richard Wagner and the homes of Erwin Schulhoff and Gustav Mahler.

3. The gallery centre of the city

The former cotton spinning mill of Leipzig is used today as an important centre for art and culture. Every year it attracts thousands of visitors to visit the galleries, the workshops of jewellers and fashion designers, the "Residenz" theatre and the LURU cinema.

An important sight of Leipzig is the Völkerschlachtdenkmal, which was inaugurated in 1913. It still reminds today of a historical event that took place at the site of the monument. This is where the Battle of the Nations of the allied armies of Prussia, Russia, Sweden and Austria against Napoleon's troops took place in October 1813, ending victoriously for the allies. The construction of the 91 metre high national monument took 15 years. Over 364 steps you reach a viewing platform from which you can enjoy the panoramic view over the city.
