Leipzig In Your Pocket

The people of Leipzig often refer to their home town as ‘the city of short distances’. Most of the neighbourhoods are within only a few kilometres of each other making travel easy. Over the past years, the city underwent a World Cup 2006 makeover, applying a thick mud mask of construction sites and detours that made it the city of short tempers - but it has now emerged from beneath the scaffolding as an even more enticing travel destination.

With no enforced closing time for pubs and restaurants, there are plenty of opportunities to blow off some steam. If you commit the names Drallewatsch, Karli and Connewitz to memory, you’ll always know to which district to go for good wholesome fun. Throw in a world-class zoo, lots of live music and a bathtub race for good measure, and there's your next weekend break.
