Leipzig's city centre wears a green coat

View of the Promenade ring at Leipzig's main station which is a network of parks around the city centre, leisure, Grünes Leipzig

The Promenadenring around Leipzig's city centre is a series of green spaces, unparalleled in the major cities in the region. Small and big parks are strung together, which make them a wonderful option for a stroll.

On your way around the completely enclosed city centre, you will also find a number of monuments of important Leipzig personalities. The ring symbolises the former wall around the old town as well as the entrance gates and the former moat. If you look down at Leipzig from above, the green ring is even more clearly visible.
