Spring in Leipzig and the Leipzig Region

The days are getting longer and the sun is finally smiling down on us again. The colourful spring flowers can also be seen everywhere pushing their heads through the still barren soil to feel the warmth on their petals. The meadows are becoming greener and the new buds on the trees are spreading the news that spring is coming to Leipzig!

The numerous parks in the city invite you to take a pleasant Sunday stroll. The first open-air café visit will refill your vitamin D reserves and the Water City Leipzig is waking from its winter sleep, making many typical Leipzig activities possible again. The wild garlic in the Leipzig floodplain forest exudes its well-known spring fragrance and the sun tempts you to take a bike ride in the Leipzig region. Easter is just around the corner, making spring one of the most lovely times of year.

Experience the greenery in Leipzig in the spring and let it enchant you!

The weather is improving and getting warmer, tempting us to step outside our four walls and leave the winter blues behind. There's something for everyone in Leipzig! Grab your bike and explore the cycle paths throughout the Leipzig region in the bright sunshine.
If you love action, head for the dizzying heights and have a go at climbing or try riding the waves at the Kanupark.

Shopping in Leipzig

Amongst the amazing sights in Leipzig's city centre, there are rows of little shops that are perfect to stroll along. On the Grimmaischen Strasse, Petersstrasse and Hainstrasse there are shops and arcades with unique architecture. These streets all lead to Leipzig Market Square. Events are held in the large market place and there are also weekly markets. If you prefer to be in the shade, then it is well worth visiting the Höfe am Brühl shopping centre where there are even more shops and restaurants.

It's also worth taking a detour away from the main shopping streets in Leipzig.
Anyone who likes unique or second-hand items will love the Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse – not only in terms of shopping, but also for its restaurants and pubs. There are plenty of places alongside the stores where you can take a break from shopping.
Unconventional and trendy shopping is available along Karl-Heine-Strasse in Plagwitz. It's especially worth taking a look at the events diary here, as once a year the street is transformed into a promenade for the "Boulevard Heine" event. You won't find any factory-made items at the BoHei & Tamtam street festival. Here, artists, artisans, craftsmen, designers and other creative people sell their products.
