Cycling in Leipzig

Leipzig, the bicycle city

Cycling in Leipzig is not just something for locals - quite the contrary!

Discover Leipzig by bicycle and decide on your route, speed and difficulty yourself. 

You can simply cycle off and leave what you will discover to chance, or be taken on a tour through Leipzig on your bicycle – various providers offer themed, guided cycling tours.

We recommend Leipzig's "Notenrad" (musical cycling tour) to music enthusiasts. And for those who need a little time out from the city, we recommend heading to Rosental, which is a mere 2 km away from the centre. This is where the largest forested floodplain in Europe begins. The idyllic paths allow you to immediately forget that you are still in the middle of the city.

Incidentally, you don't need your own bicycle in Leipzig, since there's no shortage of bicycle rental stations here. Our theme map shows you where to find these. 

Tip: Let yourself be inspired by our blog article "The 5 most beautiful bicycle tours in and around Leipzig" and cycle off to discover e.g. the "Leipziger Neuseenland" (Leipzig New Lake District).
