Both hostels are situated in Leipzig city centre. The Central Globetrotter Hostel is right next to the Leipzig main station. The Sleepy Lion Youth Hotel is just a few steps away from the Thomaskirche and other important sights, and offers clean, cheap and ideal accommodation for students, groups of young travellers, backpackers, school pupils and the young at heart.
A real alternative to conventional youth hostels. Whether for study trips, class trips or weekend breaks, both hostels offer an ideal base from which you can explore the city, following the tracks of Bach, Goethe and Schiller. It’s easy to reach the Leipziger Messe (Leipzig trade fair ground) by public transport. The main tourist attractions are right on the doorstep. You can leave your youth hostel card at home, you don’t need it and you can check in at any time.
The Leipzig book fair, the Bachfest, the international motor show, Leipzig/ Halle international Airport, the Porsche factory, the University of Leipzig with more than 30, 000 students, the Thomaskirche, the impressive Völkerschlachtdenkmal, the Nikolaikirche (where the demonstrations for a peaceful Wende began), the Bach memorial and archives, Auerbachs Keller, Moritzbastei, numerous museums, clubs, theatres, cafes, discos, restaurants and parks, Wave Gotik Treffen, the Leipzig zoo (with the biggest monkey enclosure in Europe), beautiful lake landscapes, with opportunities for swimming and watersports, Sachsentherme (a large public spa), boat tours through the Plagwitz area of Leipzig, Mitteldeutsche Rundfunk (radio for middle Germany), Belantis- the largest theme park in East Germany, the enormous train station (the largest terminus station in Europe, with over 140 shops, and over 150, 000 passengers a day), and, and… Leipzig is exactly where YOU want to be.
Then we’ll see you in the Sleepy Lion Hostel, Youth Hotel & Apartments or in the Central Globetrotter Hostel & Jugendherberge Leipzig Hauptbahnhof.
