Macro location Leipzig
"'Hypezig' - Leipzig mutates into a trendy metropolis" was the title of the Handelsblatt. Since 2010, Leipzig has been one of the fastest growing cities in Germany and is experiencing an annual increase of more than 10,000 people.
Very high demand
After the fall of the Berlin Wall, a number of large industrial companies, including Siemens, Porsche, BMW, Amazon and DHL with partners and suppliers also settled here. In addition, the city has established itself as an important centre for energy, information and finance.
The limited supply and good economic momentum have caused Munich's property prices to rise sharply for years. Since 2009, housing prices in the portfolio have risen by almost 180% and new condominiums by almost 130%. Also in 2019, the prices for existing flats increased by 7.6%, which is more than the prices for new flats, which rose by 5.4%.
Leipzig has a great musical tradition, which goes back mainly to the work of Johann Sebastian Bach and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, and is today based, among other things, on the importance of the Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Thomaner Choir. Furthermore, Leipzig is known for its wealth of elaborately restored or reconstructed cultural monuments and urban canals, the zoo with its rich variety of species, and the Leipzig Neuseenland, which was created by recultivating former open-cast lignite mines.
