Leipzig's centre is a so-called Umweltzone (environmental zone), meaning you need to obtain an Umweltplakette (emissions sticker) if you brought your own car from abroad. Check for details.

Public Transport

Buses and trams are run by LVB, which operates an information kiosk outside the Hauptbahnhof. The central tram station is here as well. There's a second LVB information kiosk on Markgrafenstrasse. Single tickets cost €1.90 for up to four stops and €2.60 for longer trips; day passes are €7.40. The S-Bahn is run by Deutsche Bahn, but the ticketing system is integrated, so LVB tickets are valid on S-Bahn services within Leipzig.


Taxis are expensive here. The minimum charge is €3.50, and each kilometre €2.50.
