Experience Leipzig: no lack of lakes

Anyone looking for leisure activities surrounded by nature is sure to be in their element in Neuseenland. The former lignite mining area around the city has long since been transformed into a beautiful local recreation area. Hiking, cycling, stand up paddleboarding, diving or a boat trip – there is plenty to discover on and around Leipzig’s ten (and counting) lakes.
