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.

By travellers, for travellers: Kokopelli offers a relaxed atmosphere for globetrotters, including guidebooks to dip into and travel talks for inspiration. 

The remains of the former city fortifications were transformed into a student club by student Angela Merkel and fellow students in the 1970s. Today, the vaults host events, concerts & co. as well as a wine and cocktail bar and a café serving home cooking.

Eat well with a clear conscience - this is possible in the organic market/organic bakers/organic restaurant Macis in a fine Art Deco atmosphere.
