Travelling by train to Leipzig
Leipzig Central Station – arrive in style!
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.
The City Tunnel connects the Central Station and, thus, Leipzig's city centre with the "Bayerischer Bahnhof" via a roughly two-kilometre-long underground link.
There are two other stops in between: Leipzig's "Marktplatz" (market square), the heart of Leipzig, and Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz. Both stations are ideal starting points for your discovery tour of Leipzig.
The City Tunnel has transformed Leizpig's central station from a pure terminus into a combined terminus and transit station, which connects the city with the region.
The City Tunnel is perfectly suited for speedily getting from A to B and for staying dry when it's raining. To explore Leipzig, however, we recommend a walking or combined tour.
