Outdoor Activities in Leipzig and the region

If you're planning a company event and want a lot of outdoor activities, you've come to the right place. Especially in the summer season, sailing, stand up paddling, surfing, wakeboarding and climbing are popular and offer sports enthusiasts a variety of opportunities to relax outdoors.


On Leipzig’s waterways

Explore the water city of Leipzig in a whole new way as you meander through the intricate system of natural rivers and man-made canals. There is even a lock that allows you to canoe all the way to Lake Cospuden.

With a total area of 7,000 hectares spread over 20 lakes, Leipzig’s New Lakeland is a major feature of the Leipzig region. Boating is also a great way to explore the varied lake scenery.

Canoe park on Lake Markkleeberg

Conquer the rapids of Germany’s most modern white-water rafting facility – alone, in pairs or as a group. At the canoe park on Lake Markkleeberg, south of Leipzig, you can enjoy a wide range of water-based leisure activities.

White-water rafting is not only an unforgettable experience for recreational athletes – it is also ideal for team days. After a briefing on land, you all sit in the same boat – and only together can you successfully navigate the treacherous waters.

At the canoe park’s unique surf spot, you can learn bodyboarding and wave surfing on waves up to 1.2m high. If you want to take things a little easier, try a dragon boat or team canoe tour.


On land or water, Schladitzer Bay offers a wide range of activities. Beach handball or beach soccer, kite surfing, stand-up paddleboarding and more offer the perfect combination of team building and fun at CAMP DAVID Sport Resort by ALL-on-SEA.

Active at the lake. On and around the water.

One of the best-known cycling routes runs along the Mulde River.


The only way is up

Ever wanted to shimmy from tree to tree, testing your skill and courage? Then the region’s climbing parks are just the thing! Climb to the top before swaying planks, swinging ropes, net bridges and beams test your sense of balance and head for heights.

Whether you are six or 60, an experienced climber or a beginner, there is something for everyone here! Bring a reasonable level of fitness, light casual clothing and sturdy footwear.
