Bicycles are not only popular as recreational and sporting equipment, but also as a practical daily means of transportation. In the city centre, it is not only the fastest means of getting from one point to another, but the one that best contributes to Leipzig's climate control efforts.
Leipzig's public transportation system relies first and foremost on its large and wide-reaching tram network, which, with thirteen separate tram lines, covers a total of 218 km of roadway. Additionally, there are 61 bus lines, which primarily serve the city districts.
With its proximity to autobahn highways A9, A14 and A38 (Leipzig-Göttingen), Leipzig is a central point on the national autobahn network. Leipzig's city districts can be reached directly from autobahn exits.
The Leipzig/Halle Airport is situated directly at the Schkeuditzer Kreuz juncture of motorways A9 and A14, 18 km from Leipzig and 23 km from Halle.
