The GWZ is close to the city centre (around 10-20min walking distance). The city has a convenient bike rental system (that operates in many cities in Germany and other countries: Nextbike) -- and bikes are definitely the way to get around in Leipzig! But there is also a good TRAM-system: the nearest TRAM station is `Neues Rathaus' or `Münzgasse, LVB'; for more information see the homepage of the Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe.
Getting to Leipzig
Arrival by train
Leipzig also has railway connections with almost all European cities. Hauptbahnhof Leipzig (Leipzig's main railway station) is located right in the city centre. Most hotels in and around the city center can be reached within 10-15 minutes.
Arrival by plane
The Halle-Leipzig International Airport (LEJ) is served by several major airlines. It might also be a convenient option to fly to Berlin (TXL or SXF). It takes less than 2 hours to get to Leipzig from both airports (there is a high-speed train between Leipzig main station and Berlin main station).
Deutsche Bahn InterCity (IC) and RegionalExpress (RE) trains, as well as local S-trains, run frequently between the Leipzig/Halle airport and Leipzig main station. The trip takes about 15 minutes. Tickets are available at vending machines on the platforms (be aware that the ticket for the faster IC train is also more expensive). More information about train connections can be found at the homepage Deutsche Bahn.
