Unfortunately, Chemnitz is not located on one of Germany’s high-speed railway lines. On the positive side, the reliability and service level of local trains in Germany outperforms the high-speed network significantly. In most cases, your best option for travelling to Chemnitz by train will be via Leipzig. Travel information, schedules and online tickets for trips originating from most places around Europe can be obtained via the website of Deutsche Bahn at:

Please use “Chemnitz Hbf” (“Hbf” is the German abbreviation for ‘main station’) as your destination

In addition to Deutsche Bahn, Flixtrain has a budget offering on some routes within Germany, including for example a link Berlin-Leipzig. However, connections are limited and need online pre-booking. More info at:


Chemnitz is served by German Highways A4 and A72, so getting in and out is fairly easy. In some areas in the city, finding a parking spot can be a challenge, especially for overnight parking.
