Media Trips to Leipzig

Leipzig is best explored individually and locally. Our media trips for journalists and bloggers give the perfect opportunity to get an authentic impression of the city and its diverse facets. Together with the journalists and our partners, we develop an individual programme to deliver pinpoint information for the article. Our range of services includes the following:

- Choice of sights and museums
- Customisation of the programme (e. g city tours)
- Organisation of accommodation
- Mediation of interview partners
- Organisation of filming permits
- Preparation and follow-up with the help of customised research materials
- Tips on events and locations
- Local public transportation if necessary

Additionally, we organise group media trips on specific topics to event highlights and special occasions. The group media trips which will take place in 2018 are on Designer’s Open and Leipzig Creative City and Christmas in the City of Music. In 2019 we plan group media trips on the topics: Bachfest Leipzig, CLARA19 - 200th Birthday of Clara Schumann, 30th Anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and 200th Birthday of Industrial Pioneer Karl Heine.
