Travelling by bus and train made easy

To help you find the best way from A to B in Leipzig by bus, tram and/or train, here's the most important information on using public transport in Leipzig. We will be happy to answer any other questions by phone (0341-19949), email or via the social networks Facebook and Twitter.

The Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe operate a modern, well-developed route network consisting of numerous tram and bus lines. Tram lines 1 to 16 will take you from all parts of the city into the city centre and back again. City buses 60 to 91 provide good, fast cross-connections between the peripheral city boroughs. The regional busses (three-digit numbers) connect Leipzig with the surrounding area.

At night, the nine Nightliner lines and the number 10 tram will take you safely to your destination. The Nightliners depart daily from the main railway station at 1:11, 2:22 and 3:33 a.m. in a star pattern to the city's peripheral boroughs, and subsequently return to the station. There are two additional departures at 1:45 and 3:00 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

All lines are integrated into our LeipzigMOVE service. Try it out right away and you'll be surprised how quickly you can get from A to B in Leipzig. Leipzig is not called the city of short distances for nothing.

In addition to telling you about connections, our information service also gives the departure times at all bus and tram stops, including any delays.

The network will help you find your way around all Leipzig's lines and connections. You can also download our app LeipzigMOVE for your mobile devices (smartphone or tablet); it is available for both Apple and Android devices and as a web app.

There is a wide range of tickets on offer designed to meet the different needs and circumstances of our customers. You will find suitable products for 'newcomers' on the pages for occasional travellers and visitors to Leipzig. The Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe services are integrated into the MDV (Central German Transport Network). This network forms the basis for coordinated timetables and a uniform tariff system, which means you can use all trams, busses, city trains (S-Bahn) and commuter trains on a single ticket – within the area and at the time for which it is valid. Tariff zone 110 covers the whole of the city of Leipzig.

If you wish to travel further, we recommend you use our network information. It tells you which ticket you need for each connection and which tariff zones are involved.
Once you have chosen a connection, you will need the appropriate ticket. The price of the ticket depends on the ticket type and the number of MDV tariff zones you want to travel through. Tariff zones divide the MDV transport area into individual sections. The network area extends from Leipzig and environs to large areas of Saxony-Anhalt and as far as Altenburg in Thuringia. If you want to travel large distances, the tariff-zone plan offers a good orientation.

You can purchase all tickets for public transport in Leipzig and the entire network area from us.

You can buy tickets from the online shop or use our apps; tickets are also available from numerous machines at bus and tram stops, in the vehicles themselves and at our service centres; there are also many other options.

We wish you a pleasent stay in Leipzig!
