You can also purchase a Leipzig Card at an LVB office or the Tourist Information in Leipzig. If you plan to use public transportation frequently in the city then these cards will be more affordable. The Leipzig Card even offers special discounts on guided tours of the city and discounts on admission to museums and cultural events. There are a variety of card types you can purchase, ranging from 1-day tickets to 3-day tickets, and 3-day group tickets. If you don’t want to use public transportation in the city then you can take a taxi or rent a car to get around Leipzig. The most preferred public transportation system in Halle is the tram.

The S-Bahn train runs north to south in Leipzig, passing through the city center and stopping at the main train station, Bayerischer Train Station, and underground stations in Markt and Wilhelm-Leuschner Platz.
