How to get to the airport

If you need to get to the Leipzig Airport from the central railway station, you can use the S-Bahn train that leaves from underground platform 2, or you can go for an intercity train, and in 20 minutes, you will be at the airport. Usually, the trains come and go two or three times per hour, but be attentive, as during the public holidays and early in the morning, often only one train per hour runs to the Halle Airport.

Promenaden Shopping Mall

In the nineties, the building of the Leipzig central station was renovated, and the unusable vast spaces of the structure along the cross gallery were converted into the modern shopping center Promenaden. There are about 200 stores and service zones in the mall. Promenaden is open every day including Sunday, that is why every weekend the mall is busy not only with the guests of the city but also with many Leipzigers, who went shopping there.
