Leipzig's charm has spread beyond regional boarders and today it is the largest city in the federal state of Saxony. Leipzig is a long-established transport and communications hub. As a centre for commerce and trade fairs that grew up at the junction between two military and trading roads, the city is today an important junction for transportation. You can find us in a co-working space at the "Alte Baumwollspinnerei" in Leipzig-Plagwitz.
