The lakes around Leipzig are becoming increasingly popular as recreational areas. Brimming with wonderful hiking trails in the most beautiful surroundings, the idyllic forests are well worth a visit too. This area has much more to offer: climb high up to the treetops or have fun tobogganing in summer. An entire white-water park has even been created at Lake Markkleeberg for extra thrills. Rafting in Central Germany – why not?

As you can see, there are plenty of fun activities to try in the Leipzig district. With these nine Tours, we take you where you can try your hand at different sports and really let off steam. You can encounter untouched nature in the forest, see curious meerkats living next to black-and-white spotted pigs and find gigantic bucket-wheel excavators towering above the ground. There’s also something for history lovers here: old quarries and impressive castles give you an insight into the region's fascinating past.

All our Tours are easily accessible by public transport operated by the Mitteldeutscher Verkehrsverbund (MDV). Whether by bus or train, they’ll whisk you to your destination, so there’s no need to drive. And best of all, you can use all public transport services with the MDV ticket at no extra cost.
