Leipzig's nights are long

A night owl in Leipzig will always find an opportunity to turn night into day.

Whether it's a pub crawl or just leaning against the bar, dancing to hip-hop, electro-pop or disco music - here you will find a selection to suit your taste .

Small "disadvantage": The large amount of trendy bars, quaint pubs, iconic clubs and nightclubs will not make your decision easy.

Tip: If you want to experience a lot in a short time, you should start in one of the two centres for Leipzig's nightlife - the Gottschedstraße in city centre, or the Karl-Liebknecht-Straße.
