Current information about the coronavirus

Considering the extremely rapid spread of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) worldwide, and in Germany itself, there is understandably also uncertainty regarding holidays and travel. We would therefore like to provide information about the current situation.

In accordance with the Saxon Corona Protection Ordinance (Sächsische Corona-Schutz-Verordnung - SächsCoronaSchVO) dated 12 May 2020, the measures to contain and combat the spread of the corona virus will be eased as of 15 May 2020 As a result, many public and private institutions will be able to reopen, provided that they have an officially approved hygiene-management concept. Protecting the population and our visitors has the highest priority. Our hospitality industry is handling the situation very responsibly. Safety is the top priority!

While the restrictions are largely being relaxed, we recommend that you check with organisers or the relevant websites and local tourist offices to find out about the current situation before starting your trip or visiting events.

The Tourist Information Centre in Katharienstraße will also open on 15 May 2020 and will then be open for you Monday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

If you have any questions regarding your travel package booked through Leipzig Tourismus und Marketing GmbH, please contact us directly at incoming@ltm-leipzig.de.

To provide you with the best possible information, we have compiled some links below with important content on the subject of the coronavirus.

With our Leipzig Travel Blog, on FacebookYouTube and Instagram as well as in our newsletter you will find current recommendations for your stay in Leipzig.
