Leipzig fastest growing city in Germany
Leipzig’s rising popularity can be seen in the numbers. A recent study by the Berlin Institute for Population and Development found Leipzig to be the most rapidly growing city in Germany, outstripping every other city in the country. The reasons for the growth in population are a very high living quality and a business-friendly and supportive environment, enabling sustainable development for startups, SMEs as well as big players.
For centuries Leipzig has been a crossroads for trade uniting business people from East and West, North and South. Until today, the exchange of not only goods but also ideas and inspirations determines the heartbeat of the city. An atmosphere of openness and friendliness is created by its citizens.
In October 2021, Leipzig was recommended as a top German destination in the latest edition of “Ultimate Destinations in Germany” published by Lonely Planet. The city was listed #1 out of 250. In January 2020, The New York Times recommended Leipzig as one of the 52 destinations to visit globally.
