Directions to the lake
Markkleeberg can easily be reached by car from all directions from the motorways A14, A9 and A38. Until 2018 the A72 should also be finished between Chemnitz and Leipzig.
Three exits from the dual-carriageway B2 can be used to quickly reach the individual sub-districts of Markkleeberg.
Directions to the lakeside promenade
Take the B2 until the exit 'Markkleeberg' then continue along the 'Seenallee' towards Markkleeberg-Ost, turn right onto the Bornaische Straße, where the main road continues towards Wachau but follow the extended Bornaische Straße that continues straight on to the Markkleeberger lake. At the lakeside promenade in Markkleeberg-Ost there are parking spaces available close to the lake.
The tram number 11 from Leipzig stops only 350 m away from the lakeside promenade in Markkleeberg-Ost.
Get off at the tram stop: 'Schillerplatz' (Markkleeberg-Ost) and walk for ca. 5 minutes along the Bornaischen Straße.
This year like last year on weekends and bank holidays from 1. May to the end of September the bus 65 will be extended from the regular final destination bus stop "Markkleeberg, Bahnhof" to "Markkleeberg, Seepromenade". In this way, bus number 65 will directly connect the two large lakes in the South of Leipzig with the West of Leipzig.
From 27th June 2015 to 4th October 2015 the new bus number 106 operates and directly connects the train station “S-Bahnhof Markkleeberg” with the Markkleeberger lake and Störmthaler lake. The timetable of the new bus 106 is aligned with the timetables of the passenger ships operating on the lakes as well as the train (“S-Bahn”) schedule. Bus stops are located at the lakeside promenade in Markkleeberg-Ost and in Auenhain close to the whitewater park.
Directions to the sport- and tourist arena 'Auenhain'
Take the dual carriageway B2 until the exit for Markkleeberg, then continue along the 'Seenallee' towards Markkleberg-Ost or Wachau, turn right onto the 'Bornaische Straße' and follow the road until you reach the road 'Bornaer Chaussee' (belonging to Wachau), turn right onto the 'Bornaer Chaussee' and keep going until you reach Auenhain. In Auenhain above the whitewater park there are parking spaces close to the lake.
