Getting around with the Convention Ticket

Event planners can benefit from this with customised mobility solutions from Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe. The Convention Ticket turns event registration letters or name badges of your attendees into travel tickets for bus and streetcars, so thus can get to the venue in a comfortable and climate-friendly way.

Electric mobility in Leipzig

With BMW and Porsche in town, Leipzig has long been an industrial location for electric mobility.

There are currently 386 charging points where you can refuel your electric car at low cost! In this way, Leipziger Stadtwerke are promoting electric mobility in the city.

However, this is not enough to satisfy the citizens of Leipzig. They want to be the city with the best e-mobility in Germany. Today, numerous initiatives and projects already ensure that Leipzig is a veritable paradise for electric cars and e-bikes.

Alongside a comprehensive network of charging stations, you can also charge your electricity in a very innovative way in Leipzig using an LED lantern. Furthermore, there are plans for bicycle highways out to Leipzig's surrounding area and the parking facilities in town are becoming ever better for electric cars.
