Markkleeberg

As close to the city as possible, yet still in the countryside? If that’s what you’re looking for, then you’ve come to the right place. The centre of Markkleeberg is just ten minutes from the city of Leipzig by train.

Markkleeberg offers peace and relaxation as well as a number of recreational activities, such as cycling on the extensive network of paths, white water tours through the canoe park rapids or simply soaking up the sun on the sandy beach. Or, you could take a canoe tour from Cospuden Lake to the harbour in Leipzig, following Waterways Course 1.

The sheer diversity of this town becomes abundantly clear on a stroll through the green Agra Park with the German Photo Museum, along the banks of Cospuden Lake or Markkleeberg Lake, and through the villa-lined streets or idyllic rural villages.
