Get Lost in Leipzig!

Welcome to Leipzig. This city is a ‘hidden gem’ practically unknown to people outside Germany. Think Berlin but more charming, better-looking and without the hype, queues or expensive rents. Whether you are studying, working or visiting we hope you find plenty of useful info and tips here.

Our best tips on Nightlife, Eating Out, and interesting local Attractions can be found in our reviews section. Also check out our popular section Hotels & Hostels

The Area Guide has detailed descriptions of Leipzig’s residential areas – a good place to start if you are thinking of moving to Leipzig. There’s information on finding furnished rental accommodation as well as prices and options for more longer term renting. We even have tips on buying property in Leipzig.

Discover how to get to grips with the trams and buses and the excellent S-Bahn network. You can easily get by in Leipzig without a car. Biking is hugely enjoyable and practical at all times of year. Leipzig has a massive network of biking trails.

The cost of living is low, and the quality of living exceptionally high. You will need health insurance for longer stays in Germany. If you are from another EU country you’re probably fine, as your home coverage should suffice for about a year. For non-EU citizens we highly recommend World Nomads Travel Insurance for basic coverage up to a year.

And there’s much more! We hope you enjoy the website and please feel free to contact us with your comments and questions, or even if you just want to say ‘hi’.

Tschüss 🙂

  1. Since my last visit to Leipzig (September 2013) I’ve been living vicariously through your site. I had a great time at the Spinnerei and am trying to convince my wife to make a trip in November for the start of the Weihnachts Markt. Thanks for the massive amount of useful information you share with visitors to your site.

  2. This blog is amazing, great job! I might be moving to Leipzig this summer and i’m finding loads of useful info here 😉

  3. This website has been a Godsend. It has answered many questions for me. I have been planning on moving to Leipzig for a long time. I’m getting on in years, so don’t know if I’ll manage to finally realize my dream. In any event, you have made life a bit happier for me.

    1. Hi Christian, Leipzig is less international than Berlin therefore less English is spoken. For work and to integrate fully IMO you’ll want to speak some German.

  4. I am in the middle of planning a group trip to Leipzig in July to watch the World Fencing Championships. I must admit that initially I was under the impression that, apart from the Fencing, there would not be much to do here. But after reading your blog, I see how wrong I was! Beer, Wagner, Fencing and Colditz: we’re going to need to stay longer!

  5. You forgot to mention the various great parks and the lakes (Cospudener, Kulkwitzer, Markkleebergeer, Werbeliner, Schladitzer) where you can swimm for free in the hot summer!
    I miss nice picture about the parks a bit. May you will find the time to add them 🙂

    1. Hi Roxan, check out this store in the Hof am Bruhl shopping mall. All sorts of weird and wonderful stuff from the GDR era 🙂
      Another idea is a bottle of local Gose beer, Allasch liqueur or Long Horn gin at the Bayerischer Gosebrauerei
