Contact and Directions

By plane: Leipzig-Halle Airport is about 30 minutes by car from the city center. A shuttle bus runs every half hour between the airport and Leipzig's main train station. If there is no direct flight to Leipzig from your city, we recommend flying to Berlin (about a 2-hour train ride to Leipzig), Frankfurt am Main or Hannover (each about a three-and-a-half-hour train ride to Leipzig). Trains run regularly from all three cities to Leipzig.

By train Interregio and Intercity trains connect Leipzig with almost all European cities.

By car By car, Leipzig can be reached via the A9 (Berlin - Nuremberg), A 14 (Halle - Dresden) or A 38 (Göttingen - Leipzig) freeways.
