The Leipziger New Sealand Region

The Leipziger Neuseenland is located around the lively cultural and trade fair city of Leipzig.

Where the lignite industry once dominated the landscape, the most interesting adventure and recreational opportunities are now to be found.

After the closure of open-cast mines and factories, an attractive leisure and recreational landscape is emerging in a breathtaking process of change.

Lake Markkleeberg

Lake Markkleeberg was opened on 15 July 2006 as the newest destination for water, trend and leisure sports enthusiasts. Three beach areas, tent and camping sites, the holiday village Seepark Auenhain and the lake promenade with shops and restaurants were created as tourist attractions.

In autumn 2006, the Canoe Park Markkleeberg opened on the Auenhain shore of Lake Markkleeberg, the new adventure spot for water sports enthusiasts. Germany's canoeing elite already trains here, and recreational canoeists have been trying out daring and artistic manoeuvres here since April 2007. Exciting national and international competitions as well as spectacular fun sport events thrill the spectators.

In addition to Lake Markkleeberg, seven other lakes in the future lake landscape of over 70 km² already offer a variety of opportunities for water sports, leisure and recreation. Away from the hustle and bustle of the trade fair city of Leipzig, you can really unwind here in the Neuseenland.

Lake Cospuden

Lake Cospuden has all the advantages of a modern water sports centre: Offers for sailing, surfing and diving, boat hire, passenger boat trips, sauna in the lake, restaurants, shops, holiday flats and holiday cabins.

Lake Kulkwitz

The Kulkwitzer See holiday park is located on Leipzig's western city boundary. The recreation area is an Eldorado for water maniacs. Guests will find a campsite, several holiday homes, two diving schools, a water ski and wakeboard facility, boat hire, a high ropes course, mini golf, children's playgrounds, various bathing beaches (including naturist beaches), restaurants and kiosks.

Lake Schladitz

Lake Schladitz, located between Leipzig and Delitzsch, offers an oasis for bathing, swimming, lounging and relaxing with its wonderful sandy beach, deep blue water and Mediterranean flair.

In the water sports school "All on Sea", beginners and advanced learn the art of sailing or surfing. The beach volleyball courts are also actively used and invite to exciting tournaments throughout the season.

Lake Störmthal

Lake Störmthal is expected to attract guests from near and far with the mining technology park and with the "VINETA" project, the artistically reshaped replica of the tower of the former church of Magdeborn on a floating pontoon.

For music fans, it has a fixed place in the diary, as the "Highfield - Festival" has been taking place on the Magdeborn peninsula for several years.

Lake Zwenkau

Lake Zwenkau was handed over in May 2015 and is the largest lake in the Leipziger Neuseenland. Leisure activities for the whole family inside and outside the cool water mean there is no room for boredom.

Young and old climb the town hall tower in Pegau together with its builder Hieronymus Lotter, visit the KAP Zwenkau exhibition pavilion on mining history or marvel at the graceful animals at the bison ranch in Neukieritzsch.
