There are several taxi offices in Leipzig. They will arrange a taxi for you. Here are the two largest:
The prices are uniformly set by the city of Leipzig for all taxis and cannot be negotiated. All taxis are fitted with a meter. The meter is turned on when you enter the taxi and always shows the current cost of your journey. You can request a receipt at the end of your journey.
Taxis can be orders in various ways:
- Getting in at the taxi rank
- Stopping at the roadside (if the yellow taxi sign on the car is turned on)
- Calling the taxi office
- Using the app of the taxi offices
The price is made up of a standing charge, an amount per kilometer driven and a surcharge due to the high cost of petrol. Higher prices apply at night and on weekends/holidays. You can find the current prices on the websites of the taxi offices and in the taxi.
Here are the prices (as of July 2022):
|Standing charge||€ 3,90||€ 3,90|
|Kilometres 1-2||€ 2,70||€ 2,90|
|Kilometres 3-10||€ 2,00||€ 2,20|
|Kilometre 11 onwards||€ 1,70||€ 2,00|
Additional charges apply when ordering a minivan and/or if the taxi has to wait.
Uber, Bolt and Uklon are banned in Leipzig. They are not allowed to offer any services here.
