Leipzig is a traditional transportation hub. More than ever before, the trade fair and trade centre, which has grown at the crossroads of two military and trade routes, bundles transport routes from all directions.

Thanks to its location on the motorways A9, A14 and A38, Leipzig is ideally connected to the nation-wide motorway network. The city centre can be reached via the following exits:

  • From Berlin and Magdeburg via A14, Exit Leipzig-Mitte
  • From Dresden via A14, Exit Leipzig-Ost
  • From Munich and Erfurt via A38, Exit Leipzig-Südwest

An overview of all Park + Ride lots (P & R) can be found on the Theme Map.
