Its not easy to choose the most important of those numerous sights in Leipzig, here comes our choice:

For further details and more information take a look at the Tourist Service.

About 30 museums can be found throuout the City.Worth a vist to leran about our GDR history: Museum in der Runden Ecke (memorial museum) and the Zeitgeschichtliches Forum, both tell about the resistance, the secret service "Stasi" and Revolution of '89.


Leipzig is moreover a "green city", impregnated with large parks, the unique nature reserve Auenwald as well as a veritable maze of waterways. A large lake in the west of the city (Kulkwitzer See) and the Cospudener See in the south offer a large choice of watersports such as diving, surfing and sailing. Just outside of Leipzig, in the north and south, you will also find large lake areas which are well worth exploring. Lakes nearby.


Even right in the city there are countless possibilities. With a canoe or a rowing boat, you can also explore the rivers and canals of the westerly city districts of Plagwitz, Schleußig and Lindenau. The greenery intermingles with dilapidated factory sites, ruined buildings, nobly renovated houses, massive stone built warehouses and cafes with their own landing points to moor your boat. Definitely our secret tip !

Leipzig is also a city for the bicyclist. The countless bicycle paths will take you all through the inner city and the parks, right out to the suburbs. An extra city map has even been made, just for bicyclists. Also, in conjunction with the Expo 2000, a particularly idyllic cycle path was constructed, stretching along the Heine canal for several kilometres.

Inline skaters can also have their fun among the relatively traffic free zones in the city, at the Cospudener See, the Kulkwitzer See and at the exhibition site of the New Trade Fair Center. Please note though, that the bicycle paths are not always suitable for skating. Suggested: Cospudener SeeKulkwitzer See  New Trade Fair Area
