Welcome to Leipzig New Lakeland!

Find your place in an up-and-coming tourism region

Leipzig New Lakeland represents one of the most ambitious recultivation projects in Europe. Within only 25 years, a uniquely touristic water network has emerged in the former central German brown coal district around the largest city in Saxony. 23 lakes of the post-mine landscape will be connected to the rivers and canals of the City of Leipzig by 2030. The proximity to the city, country and water in one of the most significant cultural landscapes in central Europe as well as excellent infrastructure offer extraordinary potential for highly dynamic development in the leisure and tourism industry.

The Region of Leipzig, its rural districts and northern Saxony already welcome XXX visitors every year – and this trend has been rising for years. At the same time, the population of the City of Leipzig is growing faster than any other German metropolis – the best prerequisites for the development of a sustainable leisure and tourism industry between Cospudener See and Schladitzer Bucht.
