How to get there

How do you get to Leipzig?

By air
Flughafen Leipzig/Halle (Leipzig/Halle Airport) is a roughly 30 minutes drive from the city centre. Deutsche Bahn InterCity and RegionalExpress trains run regularly between the airport station and Hauptbahnhof Leipzig (Leipzig main railway station). If there is no direct flight to Leipzig from your city, we recommend you fly to Berlin (about two hours to Leipzig by train), Frankfurt or Hanover (both about three and a half hours to Leipzig by train). There are regular trains to Leipzig from all three cities.

By rail
Deutsche Bahn InterCity- und InterCityExpress trains link Leipzig with almost all European cities. Hauptbahnhof Leipzig (Leipzig main railway station) – one of the biggest and most beautiful in Germany – is located right in the city centre.

By road
To reach Leipzig by road take Autobahns A9 (Berlin - Nuremberg) and A14 (Halle - Dresden).
