Getting to Leipzig
Leipzig is a long-established transport and communications hub. As a centre for commerce and trade fairs that grew up at the junction between two military and trading roads, Leipzig today is more than ever the focus for transport links from all points of the compass. This provides a wide range of options for getting to the city.
The A9, A14 and A38 (Leipzig - Göttingen) motorways mean that Leipzig is centrally placed within the German motorway network. There is direct access from the motorway junctions to the various parts of the city. We recommend the following routes into the city centre:
- From Berlin and Magdeburg: approach on the A14, leaving at junction 'Leipzig-Mitte' (Leipzig City Centre)
- From Dresden: approach on the A14, leaving at junction 'Leipzig-Ost' (Leipzig East)
- From Munich and Erfurt: approach on the A38, leaving at junction 'Leipzig - Südwest' (Leipzig South West)
For guidance within the city extensive information is available via the Car-Park Routing System and the Roadworks Information System.
Of course you can also reach Leipzig by rail, air and bus. Find more information on the website of the Leipzig Tourismus and Marketing GmbH.
