BELANTIS theme park: where boredom doesn't stand a chance

BELANTIS theme park, located just 10km south of Leipzig, offers fantastic fun for all the family. Open since 2003, it is the largest theme park in eastern Germany.

BELANTIS theme park in the Leipzig lakes region boasts over 60 attractions in its eight theme worlds, as well as two picturesque lakes. The theme worlds bear impressive names such as Valley of the Pharaohs, Beach of the Gods, Land of the Counts, Island of the Knights, Coast of the Explorers and Prairie of the Indians. From butterflies in your stomach on the family rollercoaster and splashtastic fun on the water rides to the numerous hands-on activities for budding explorers – you can experience it all at BELANTIS. Fearless guests can look forward to a thrilling wildwater ride through Europe's largest pyramid. The HURACAN rollercoaster in the Kingdom of the Sun Temple loops the loop no fewer than five times and is a must for thrill-seekers. One of the world's ten steepest rollercoasters, it climbs 32 metres before dropping into free-fall. Other highlights include Poseidon's Fleet, where at times you get to steer the boats, and the Flight of the Gods, where you control the wings of your plane and decide if you want to spin. BELANTIS is the only theme park in the world where you can get your Segway driving licence. It also boasts the only offroad quad course at a theme park and Europe's only tilt tower (a cross between a ride and a boat swing). For small children BELANTIS offers plenty of room for experimentation and learning: budding racing drivers can compete against others in the desert rally or enjoy an altogether wetter experience on the Plantscha Boats!

Highlights

BELANTIS theme park features an impressive programme of shows and entertainment. The popular Halloween spectacular marking the season finale features imaginative decorations that go far beyond the customary jack-o'-lanterns!

Whether you are looking for the ultimate adrenaline rush, lots of fun or simply a relaxing day out, BELANTIS has something for everyone. BELANTIS theme park – offering thrills and spills for over ten years.

Highfield Festival

The best Indie-Rock-Festival in the East

The festival near Großpösna is the most important indie-rock festival in the eastern states of Germany by now. The Beatsteaks, Placebo, Billy Talent and the Foo Fighters are regular guests such as German bands like Seeed, K.I.Z. and Casper and fire up the two stages in front of 25.000 visitors. Situated at Störmthaler See, the festival guarantees a fun weekend of sunshine, hanging by the lake and seeing some favorite bands without any feeling of the area being overcrowded. As one of the greener festivals, there is a „Green Camp“ and the „Viva Con Agua“ initiative creates ecological awareness.

A day with Lipzi Tours

We met John Ommeln from Lipzi Tours in Leipzig. He organizes guided tours for groups as well as individually adapted tours. You can choose from tours by bike or walk. We walked around in the western parts of the city, in the areas Plagwitz and Lindenau. It was incredibly beautiful! John really knows everything about Leipzig. And we learned a lot. Such as the fascinating history of the city, today's music scene and food culture. Speaking of food culture, veganism have become very popular here. Exciting! Did you know that Leipzig was previously known for its fairs? The fairs meant that people from other parts of the world came to the city, which was unusually during communism time. It has affected Leipzig a lot and has led to that the people there are more open today. The city was, because of this, not as closed to the outside world. We got to see several beautiful parks during the long walk. We are very fond of all the green surroundings mixed with the beautiful and magnificent houses and graffiti. In Leipzig nature meets the urban.

Nightlife Hotspots in Leipzig

Moritzbastei One of the best know party locations in the city. The Moritzbastei offers a wide variety of music at night and if you don't feel like dancing there's always the option to grab a drink and watch the crowd from one of the many cosy corners. The Moritzbastei is located right in front for the University building, just take the stairs downstairs and you're there. The building itself used to be part of the Leipzig mediaeval fortifications and was transformed into a cultural center in 1982. Address: Universitätsstrasse 9 Cafe Waldi Imagine walking into your German grandparents home to meet up with some friends over a beer and a bite to eat. The walls are decorated accordingly with deer horns, vintage nature paintings and funny looking carvings. And then the DJ shows up and turns the living room into a dance floor. Now, that's what a great party should look like. There are plenty of drinks to choose from, the food is tasty and they also offer daily events at night! 
Address: Peterssteinweg 10 Cafe Luise Right in the middle of the party mile of Gottschedestrasse you'll find spacious Cafe Louise. At night little remains of the cafe and the place turns into a laid back bar with great food and a good selection of drinks to choose from. If you're heading there on a Friday night you can return to the scene of crime the following morning as the Cafe offers a great breakfast on Saturdays! Address: Bosestraße 4 (on the corner to Gottschedestrasse) 
Vodkaria The the Vodkaria over 600 different kinds of vodka spirits are waiting for thirsty customers. A small part of which is displayed in a large fridge right in front when you enter the bar. But – before you get started on shots also make sure you check out the menu. Polnish Barschtsch, russian Pelmeni or an islandic specialities with names like “Löggaeslumyndavélunum” are not only delicious – they're also a great idea if you're planning on a long night of drinking. Nastrovje! Address: Gottschedestraße 15. Flower Power The sign pointing towards the Flower Power on Petersstrasse is so big that you'll have no way of missing it, even if your eyes are already a bit tired. Once you've entered the bar your eyes will have to adjust again to the the unusual interior. Watch out for flowers growing from the walls and ceiling and make sure you don't miss the cow that runs on a cable just above the bar. At the back of the bar there's even a dartboard. Ask for the password for free wifi! This is the kind of bar you'll want to hit late – or if you come early check out the live band. Adresse: Riemannstraße 42

Food & art

Food & art

Leipzig is a stunningly beautiful city and yesterday we got to see lots of it. Among other things, we went on a guided tour called eat-the-world.com in the area Suedvorstadt. We walked around the area for several hours and visited various places with food theme. Including a coffee roastery, an ice cream parlor and a restaurant. Eat-the-world.com wants every single tour to be a bit of a surprise, so therefore we do not disclose everything about the sites. But it was both good and interesting and the guide was awesome! During the tour we also got to see several beautiful and cultural places in Leipzig. Afterwards we went straight out to Spinnerei for another guided tour. Spinnerei is located just outside the city center and is a former spinning mill which is now a huge part of the art scene in Leipzig and widely known in art circles. Here you will find both exhibition halls, galleries, studios, where artists work and independent cinema. Before we went back into town we had time for a beer in their biergarden. Cosy!

First night in Leipzig

First night in Leipzig

We took the train towards Leipzig this evening. It went quick and smooth. We arrived approximatly after one hour. Once there, we walked to our hotel, Penta Hotel. It is an extremely stylish design hotel, far from the Scandinavian interior design we are so accustomed to. Who does not dream about a gold glittery floor in the elevator? Unfortunately the girl who checked us in, made us a bit disappointed when she was neither friendly or interested. She was a little out of place in the fantastic looking combined check-in desk and bar. Internet costs extra on the hotel, which is a shame. And you are only able to use your login on one device at a time. Tonight we had dinner at Vapiano. It is a favorite home in Stockholm. Here in Germany thought, the prices are half as much compared to Sweden. Hurray! After dinner we strolled around a few blocks in the central parts of the city. The city feels spacious, beautiful and fresh. We really looking forward to explore this place in the coming days!

Burgermeister

Late Night Burger Stop

Every party night has to come to an end at some stage. If you don't want to go to bed hungry make sure you stop at the Burgermeister on Südplatz - possibly the best place for burgers in all of Leipzig.
