Out and about on Leipzig’s waterways
A little sightseeing by boat after your event? Or why not rent a surfboard, sailboat, stand-up paddleboard or canoe? It’s all so easy in and around Leipzig. Thanks to its numerous canals, waterways and lakes just outside the city
, Leipzig offers perfect conditions for water sports of all kinds – or for a leisurely boat trip to accompany your event. A canoe or rowing boat
is a great way to glide along the waterways at your own pace, listen to the lapping of the water and disconnect from the hustle and bustle. In Leipzig’s surrounding countryside, you also have the opportunity to go sailing, surfing, or keep your balance while stand-up paddleboarding – perfect for team building of the active variety. Our tip: you can even go whitewater rafting at the canoe park on Lake Markkleeberg.
During the summer months, boat tours are particularly popular in Leipzig. From the water, you are guaranteed completely new perspectives of the city. It’s useful to know that boats are also available for hire for private tours. Floating along the White Elster and the Karl Heine Canal, visitors can marvel at Leipzig’s multifaceted urban landscape and architecture and learn exciting details about the city, especially the districts of Plagwitz and Schleußig, from the boat guide.
