You might want to ask other expats questions about the move, such as "what is the healthcare system like in Germany?" or "what are the best international schools in Leipzig?". It doesn't matter how many questions you have, our InterNations Community in Leipzig is happy to answer them and offer advice and their experience.
With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you move to another city or go on a business trip somewhere — our communities are there to make you feel at home wherever you are in the world. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Jeddah or Dubai.

The largest city in the federal state of Saxony, Germany, Leipzig is known for its exciting music and cultural scene. The spread-out city has excellent infrastructure and many people get around by bicycle. The city has been a trade city since Roman times, and is still a major urban center in eastern Germany. Rental prices are very reasonable in the city; many people rent when they first arrive before they invest in property in Leipzig. A number of expats and students live in modern accommodation and work in the important business center of the city. Known as a fair-trade capital, Leipzig is the second most dynamic city in eastern Germany, after Berlin.
