Participants are asked to make their own travel arrangements to and from Leipzig. Visitors from abroad should make sure to meet the entry requirements and have a valid visa (a short-stay tourist visa is sufficient). [Check here whether you need a visa for Germany.]
Leipzig has an international airport, from where trains connect to the city center in 15 minutes.
Leipzig has perhaps the most impressive railway station building in Germany, and convenient high-speed train connections from Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Berlin and Dresden (Deutsche Bahn).
Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe (LVB), the local public transportation company, runs a network of trams and buses that make most points of the city easily accessible.
