Water & Vitality

Whether you prefer a laid-back canoe trip on the waterways or would like to have a go at the latest watersport trend on the lakes, it's all available to try in the Leipzig region.

The network of waterways is particularly well-loved by canoeists and kayakers. Here, natural watercourses connect the cultural city of Leipzig to the newly created lakes surrounding it. You can discover the city and its surroundings in a canoe or rowing boat on these family-friendly waterways.

If you would prefer something a little more active and trendy, you can try your hand at kitesurfing, white water rafting in the Markkleeberg Canoe Park, or wakeboarding. And of course, other water lovers who enjoy diving, sailing or simply swimming will find plenty to entertain them in Region Leipzig.

You can tour the lakes and waterways of Leipzig or the Mulde in comfort on a range of passenger ships or motorboats. Tuck into coffee and cake while you listen to the stories told by the ships' captains, who are certain to tell you something you didn't already know about the region.

Alternatively, if the weather is not playing along, there is also a whole host of leisure pools with activity and wellness packages in the Leipzig region, where the grown-ups can relax while the little ones splash about to their hearts' content.
