A metropolitan region worth living in

Metropolitan dynamics and La Dolce Vita are extremely close together in this region.

The Region of Leipzig unites everything that constitutes a good life: top-notch culture and education, a city and nature in perfect harmony as well as good living and working. People of all ages, families, seniors, students or artists – they all feel at home in this region. This is due to the affordable rents, a lot of livable greenery just outside the door, enough space for creativity, a vibrant cultural scene and lively night life.

The City of Leipzig is growing faster than any other major German city. More than 580,000 people live in the metropolis, and by 2030 there could be more than 700,000. Young people in particular are drawn to the city on the Pleiße. The entire Region of Leipzig, its surrounding districts and Northern Saxony are home to over a million people. Creating the framework conditions for this quickly growing population is the most important task of the administration, which is sustainably developing the ecological, social and economic aspects with an integrative approach.

A region for young and old

Leipzig's surrounding countryside lives on inviting cultural landscapes and rapidly changing landscapes in former mining areas.



The Region of Leipzig is not only a strong and dynamic economic region: cultural highlights, a dense and idyllic network of hiking trails, paved bicycle paths as well as a unique lake landscape also characterise the location.
