The grounds on Cottaweg in the city of Leipzig serve as a traditional festival venue for various events throughout the year.

Due to its area of 35,000 m² and excellent transport accessibility, the location with up to 1,000 parking spaces often also serves as a parking area for visitors to major events in the neighbouring Red Bull Arena or the Festwiese in front of the stadium.

Three times a year, the site itself is the venue for the traditional Kleinmesse (funfair), an amusement park with merchandise booths and games of chance as well as numerous merry-go-rounds and rides that guarantee adventure and fun.
