    When my company decided to send me to Essen, I took a quick look at the local community and said: Please do!

What to Expect from Life in Leipzig

The largest city in the federal state of Saxony, Germany, Leipzig is known for its exciting music and cultural scene. The spread-out city has excellent infrastructure and many people get around by bicycle. The city has been a trade city since Roman times, and is still a major urban center in eastern Germany. Rental prices are very reasonable in the city; many people rent when they first arrive before they invest in property in Leipzig. A number of expats and students live in modern accommodation and work in the important business center of the city. Known as a fair-trade capital, Leipzig is the second most dynamic city in eastern Germany, after Berlin.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Khobar (Eastern Prov.) or Abu Dhabi, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
