Unique infrastructure powering innovative logistics solutions
In the heart of Europe.
One important reason for the Leipzig Region’s popularity and growth is its unique location in central Germany, at the heart of Europe. Due to this unique selling point, the location now functions as a major international transhipment hub. DHL, for example, deliberately operates one of its three global hubs here, its largest worldwide.
Free space – open developments
Compared to other top locations in Germany and Europe, the booming economic region of Leipzig has a decisive competitive advantage: it still has space to grow. The city is far from reaching its full capacity. As a planned city of over a million inhabitants, Leipzig still offers plenty of building land in the region’s heart – and some of it in prime locations. In addition, there are extensive brownfield sites on old industrial sites available for revitalisation and new land development. These include charming Wilhelminian factory complexes in the Graphisches Viertel or Plagwitz and huge sites at the Eutritzscher Freiladebahnhof and Bayerischer Bahnhof, where the city is creating entire new districts. The supply of space in the wide areas on the periphery of the city and the two new districts is even more abundant. All in all, the Leipzig Region offers perfect location conditions with a wealth of attractive sites of all shapes and sizes for your business to settle and grow. Whether for offices, laboratories, industry or logistics, in existing buildings or on greenfield sites, Leipzig has a site that will meet your requirements.

Leipzig/Halle Airport is Germany’s second-largest cargo airport and one of the top four cargo hubs in Europe. The airport acts as a beacon around which numerous national and international companies from the logistics, manufacturing production and E-Commerce sectors have already settled and continue to settle. A goods traffic centre supplements the air traffic at the intersection of the transport axes from Scandinavia to Southern Europe and from the Benelux to Central and Eastern Europe.
Four congestion-free motorways provide access to almost all major European economic areas in less than ten truck hours.
Europe’s largest railway terminus, Leipzig’s central railway station, is the intersection of the high-speed lines Berlin-Munich and Dresden-Frankfurt (Main), which provide high-speed connections to Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt and Hamburg.
