Leisure activities in Leipzig's green spaces

The Leipzig New Lake District (in German: Neuseenland) is a favourite regional destination for outings and travel, particularly during the summer months. Countless cycling and hiking trails, as well as modern water sport facilities, make Leipzig ideal for an active and varied holiday. Picturesque sandy beaches for sunbathing and bathing fun.

Both the Leipzig Zoo and the AbenteuerReich BELANTIS (adventure park) are an experience for the whole family and a must for every Leipzig visitor. The Markkleeberg Canoe Park is a great destination for the adventurous at heart.
