"The southern region of Leipzig" Leipzig Off The Beaten Path Tip by Leipzig

Leipzig Off The Beaten Path: 43 reviews and 69 photos


The southern region of Leipzig bears the scars of lignite mining begun about 200 years ago. The enormous dimensions of former open-cast mining are still clearly visible in the countryside. The redevelopment of the mining landscape south of Leipzig was also a project for the World Exposition EXPO 2000.
