Trail station 1

The Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe (Leipzig Transport Authority) is the central mobility service provider of the City of Leipzig with inter- and intralinked mobility offers, real-time data and mobile as well as flexible online ticketing in addition to the classic sales channel. More than 80% of the transport services in the tram network are already carried out with electric vehicles, that use 100% green electricity.
The existing bus network is also on its way to electric transportation. Innovative and customer-friendly, the Leipzig mobil app connects the public transport services with taxi, car, and bike-sharing on the mobility platform of the public transportation companies. The annual number of passengers has been rising faster than population growth for some time now. This is influencing fleet renewal and expansion as part of the ongoing investment offensive.

Experience the magic of Porsche before a Porsche becomes a Porsche: Enjoy an exclusive look behind the scenes on a factory tour. Accompany the Panamera and Macan on their way through production. At every individual stage, there is highly sophisticated interaction between man and machine. The timing must match the exact second – as befits a sports car manufacturer. The decisive moment: marriage – that is when the body is connected to the powertrain and the chassis. Each Porsche’s baptism of fire involves a test drive on the company’s racetrack. Only then does one more Porsche dream become reality.
