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.

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.
