The Leipzig Central Station offers the perfect start to your stay in Leipzig.

Located directly in the city centre, the station is the ideal starting point for exploring the city. And: you can easily and comfortably reach all of Leipzig's districts with the "Bimmel" ("Leipzigish" for tram). 

But, before setting off, stay a little! Have a look around the now over 100-year-old architectural monument. You will agree - there is barely a single more beautiful or larger train station, at least not in Europe.

You have already acknowledged that, no doubt! The Leipzig Central Station is much more than just a central transport hub. The "Promenaden Hauptbahnhof" (Central Station Mall), doubles up as the no. 1 shopping mile in Leipzig. Here, in over 140 shops, you can find everything you are looking for, and everything you didn't even known you were looking for, too.

Do you want to experience more? Then we recommend you participate in a tour through the Central Station. Find all details on this and other tours on our exciting tours and experiences.
