Travel Information

Getting to Leipzig

By air

Flughafen Leipzig/Halle (Leipzig/Halle Airport) is a roughly 30 minutes drive from the city centre. Deutsche Bahn InterCity and RegionalExpress trains run regularly between the airport station and Hauptbahnhof Leipzig (Leipzig main railway station). If there is no direct flight to Leipzig from your city, we recommend you fly to Berlin (about two hours to Leipzig by train), Frankfurt or Hanover (both about three and a half hours to Leipzig by train). There are regular trains to Leipzig from all three cities.

By rail

Deutsche Bahn InterCity- und InterCityExpress trains link Leipzig with almost all European cities. Hauptbahnhof Leipzig (Leipzig main railway station), one of the biggest and most beautiful in Germany, is located right in the city centre.

By car

To reach Leipzig by car, take Autobahns A9 (Berlin - Nuremberg) and A14 (Halle - Dresden).

Getting to campus

By public transport

Starting from Leipzig Central Station, tram (streetcar) lines 10 and 11 will take you to the HTWK campus. Tram line 10 (direction: Loßnig) and tram line 11 (direction: Markkleeberg Ost) both depart right in front of central station. Get off at the seventh stop, ‘HTWK’. You will see HTWK Leipzig’s main building right across the street.

By car

Starting from central station (Willy-Brandt-Platz), follow Tröndlinring and turn left onto Goerdelerring, which soon becomes Dittrichring. Make a left onto Martin-Luther-Ring and, shortly afterwards, a right onto Peterssteinweg, which soon becomes Karl-Liebknecht-Straße. Continue ahead; the HTWK Leipzig campus is about two kilometers down the road. Alternatively, coming into Leipzig on the B2 motorway (Wundstraße), exit at A9/Weißenfels/Grünau/Südvorstadt and turn right onto Kurt-Eisner-Straße. From there, make a right onto Karl-Liebknecht-Straße.
