Getting there by Air
Leipzig/Halle airport is 18km from the city center. There is a shuttle bus service to the main train station. It takes about 30 minutes and runs at 30 minute intervals through the business day. A taxi to the city center will cost about 30 Euros.
Leipzig's Train Station
Leipzig's Hauptbanhoff has the most tracks of any railway station in Germany. It's a major transfer point for trains to just about anywhere. The station also features three floors of underground mall, and because it's in a train station, the stores are open until 10 pm. You'll find everything you need here for your journey--from inexpensive sandwiches and pastries to Eddie Bauer outfits.
