Boomtown Leipzig: City of trade fairs and art

An active art scene and the success of the "New Leipzig School", as well as its increasing popularity among students, have contributed to the city acquiring the nickname "Hypezig". For years now, it is not only the population of the city that has been increasing; the number of overnight stays in the city has been increasing at a record pace.

The Saxon metropolis, with one of the oldest trade fair grounds worldwide, is a destination for those on business and conferences from all over the world.

Relaxation, art and culture

During a tour of the Leipzig cotton mill and its many galleries, visitors can gain insights into the city's lively artistic scene. The 91m Monument to the Battle of the Nations, built in 1913 in the south east of the city, offers great views across the city. 

Excitement seekers can find it in abundance at the Leipzig racecourse. However anyone seeking relaxation should visit the "Leipzig lake district", which attracts bathers and water-sports fans from Leipzig and its surroundings.
