The quick way to Leipzig: By car, train, bus or air

Leipzig is located in the heart of Europe. Congress Center Leipzig (CCL) is easy to reach any way you choose - car, train, long-distance bus or by plane. The Congress Center is located right by the Autobahn, near the Schkeuditzer Kreuz (interchange). The Leipzig/Halle airport is only eight minutes by Autobahn.

If you arrive at the Leipzig main train station with the ICE, you can take the regional train (Regionalbahn/RB) or the rapid transit trains (S-Bahn/MDV) to reach the "Leipzig Messe" stop in just six minutes. If you are coming from downtown, the tram line 16 will get you to the grounds in approximately 20 minutes.
