Travel to and around Leipzig

The city of Leipzig can be reached via its international airport, by train or by car.


The Leipzig/Halle Airport is about 30 minutes away from the centre of Leipzig. There are regular trains from the main
terminal to Leipzig Central Station .

If there are no direct flights to Leipzig from where you live, we recommend flying to Berlin (about 2 hours away from
Leipzig by rail), Frankfurt am Main or Hanover (both of which are about 3½ hours away from Leipzig by rail). Leipzig is served by a regular rail service to and from all three cities.
