How to get to the Max Planck Institute

Travel arrangements

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.]

Public transportation

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.
