InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Leipzig

Hello to all Americans in Leipzig! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Leipzig? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Leipzig which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Leipzig is one of the most livable cities in Germany. The most populous city in Saxony is a vibrant city known for being a major center for music and its role in the Peaceful Revolution of 1989, but also for its fast-paced gentrification in the past decades, the local youthful vibe, and much more! With the modern and extensive public transportation system consisting of suburban trains (S-Bahn), buses, and trams, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the surrounding towns and municipalities of Leipzig, which are an easy commute away from Leipzig’s center.

Although Leipzig has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Leipzig, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
