Outstanding quality of life

Since 2011 the Red Bulls have held their home matches in the Red Bull Arena. This stadium has capacity for 43,500 spectators.

Region Leipzig is a good place to live. The modern metropolitan area has a strong culture of hospitality and provides an outstanding quality of life. Leipzig combines the advantages and dynamism of an up-and-coming city with the peace and quiet and natural beauty of its rural setting. The two are expertly linked by the modern transport infrastructure and coordinated bus and rail routes provided by the MDV transport network. The city of Leipzig has a population of 530,000 which is increasing by 2 per cent each year – the highest growth rate of any of Germany's 15 largest cities. There are a number of good reasons for this. The university city attracts young people and students in droves every year.

Leipzig's New Lakeland area stands for relaxation, sport and recreation in Region Leipzig.

The region's companies provide a number of attractive career opportunities to choose from. And the housing on offer invites you to move, settle in and put down some roots. No matter what's at the top of your wish list – solid middle-class housing in thoroughly modernised Gründerzeit houses, the extravagance of modern city villas, maisonettes for the view across the vibrant cityscape, or the space of a riverside loft apartment – prices are (still) reasonable and the quality of life is priceless

The area surrounding Leipzig, in the district authorities of North Saxony and Leipzig, thrives on the inviting combination of sophisticated cultural landscapes and stretches of land shaped by the human hand in former mining areas, which have long served as sparkling sailing areas and are currently going through something of a revival. Sites ready for residential construction with authentic southern charm, lake hiking routes and paths for in-line skating are well linked from the bike paths and hiking trails of the traditional cultural centres. Two tranquil floodplains, Dahlen Heath and Düben Heath, form central Germany's largest contiguous area of forest. Its 500 kilometres of bike paths and hiking routes provide ample space to relax and unwind. And the lively city of Leipzig, with enough culture for a city at least twice its size, is not far away either.
