Getting around in Leipzig
One of Leipzig’s particularly attractive features is that distances are short, and it is easy to get from one place to the other.
Transportation airport – hotels:
Leipzig-Halle Airport is located at a distance of approx. 30 minutes from the city centre. Most of the hotels are located within or very close to Leipzig’s historic centre. Very easy, quick and inexpensive access is provided by a regular shuttle train, or by buses. A taxi ride costs approx. 30 Euros.
Transportation airport – venue:
The Congress Center Leipzig is located right in the middle between the airport and the city centre. This gives the participants a ride of 15 minutes from the airport to the venue, and (continuing the same direction) another 15 minutes to the city centre. A public transport option is again the shuttle train to the city which calls at the venue. A taxi ride costs approx. 25 Euros (airport – venue), or 15 Euros (venue – city centre)
Public transport and transportation city (hotels) – venue:
Leipzig features an excellent and perfectly reliable public transport network which is mostly operated by LVB Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe (the Leipzig Transport Company). Many traffic infrastructures have been completely modernised for the 2006 Football World Cup and live up to the most advanced standards.
The best connection between the city centre and the venue is tram line 16, which takes less than 20 minutes.
LVB have always largely contributed to the success of international conferences. They adapt the frequency of their trams to the passenger demand in a flexible way, and they offer discounted fares for congress participants. LVB will be pleased to offer participants free rides on all trams and buses in Greater Leipzig during the entire Congress with the Congress badge as a ticket.
