Midsummer in Leipzig and the city’s getting hot, so the city fathers have devised the Water Festival, with all kinds of races on and along Leipzig's waterways, from serious to hilarious, from homemade rafts to rubber ducks. It’s a great excuse to explore the likes of Leipzig’s 11km watery meander lined by magnificent late-19th century villas and parks, out to Lake Cospuden.
According to the motto "From harbor to harbor", popular events such as the boat parade, the fishing contest and the band competition will take place on Leipzig's waterways. Between the city harbor and the Lindenau harbor, places on the water will be brought to life with art and culture.
