Sports Museum

The Sports Museum of Leipzig serves as a centre of collection and documentation. It hosts more than 85 000 objects. Thus, Leipzig owns one of the biggest collections concerning the history of sports in Germany.

One important mission of the museum is to realise a permanent exhibition in a durable exhibition space. Inquiries regarding the facility as well as the use of the library and the collections are possible during our business hours.

Sports Route Leipzig

The city of Leipzig has a very long and varied sports tradition. Numerous buildings, squares or larger areas in the city are closely connected with regional, national and international sports history. In order to make these visible to the citizens of Leipzig and guests interested in sports history, the city of Leipzig, together with the Leipzig Museum of City History, developed the project Sportroute Leipzig (only in German).
