Delegates from Central Europe often choose GERMAN RAILWAYS as their travel options. Connections throughout Germany are quick and comfortable (distance to Hamburg or Frankfurt is 3 hours), and even for some neighboring countries, the train is an attractive option.

Leipzig’s Central Railway Station, located in the city centre, is the largest terminal railway station in Europe with 23 platforms, and a large shopping mall.


Leipzig can easily be reached by car, as it is very well connected with the Autobahn highway system. The nearest Autobahn highways are A14 (North, Northeast), A9 (West) and A38 (South).
