Leipzig - Uniquely adventurous

Leipzig is a city that everyone should be visit at least once in their lives.

It is a Superlative City – and not just in the areas of music, art, culture, history or architecture. Even nature and animal lovers, athletes, and big and little adventurers can find great experiences in Leipzig. Here you can find, for example, the oldest urban landscape park in Germany, the largest great ape enclosure in the world, the highest artificial indoor climbing wall, the largest urban alluvial forest and the largest pyramid in Europe, and much more.

Leipzig has many faces and sights worth seeing. No matter what you're looking for – you will find it in Leipzig.

Look forward to a city that offers far too much to cram into a single visit. You're sure to want to return!

What do you want to see first? We have collected a series of green, animal, active and adventurous experiential highlights to help you figure out where you would like to start.
