Meet Leipzig’s global & local community!


What we’ve created

An international webzine for our region

With about 15,000 visits per month and readers from around the world, The Leipzig Glocal (LeipGlo) is the only English-language web magazine based in Leipzig.

We sometimes also publish in German and Spanish, and have had writers representing at least a dozen countries.

Our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) have about 8,000 followers combined, with a balanced female/male ratio (60/40) among our core readership.

We have a loyal, enthusiastic follower base of internationals located or interested in Leipzig, and Germans who like to read in English.

Millennials make up nearly half our readership, although we also have good representation from other age groups.

Our followers' age groups on Facebook are also well-balanced. (Source: business.facebook.com)

We are a link between global and local angles on various topics, and provide an important service and platform for those living in or seeking to come to Leipzig.

We publish on social media on a daily basis, and original articles on LeipGlo.com every other day.

Our posts range from entertainment and arts & culture to business, travel, politics, and services for international people (such as info on jobs, doctors, movies, events, and museums).

These services pages received over 11,000 clicks combined in the past quarter.

About half our visitors use English as their primary language; one fourth German; and the rest, other languages.

We are also building a community offline, hosting events such as an open mic every other month at the beautiful local venue Baileo Tanzpassion.

Our partnerships with local businesses and venues are growing, and we are planning several other types of events for the near future.



A lasting community

Since we began in March 2015, we have built a good relationship with the startup community, international clubs, and higher education institutions.

Dozens of our readers and close contacts are international students and highly educated young professionals we connected with during our own PhD studies at Leipzig University, as well as during networking and promotional efforts.

We have found that besides Leipzig residents, many people also follow us from outside Leipzig (and Germany), either before coming or after leaving.

An estimated 35% of our viewership is in Mitteldeutschland; 18% in big German cities like Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, and Cologne; 10% in the US; 6% in the UK; and 31% in other countries.

Once a Leipziger...

Many have remained loyal readers, appreciative that we helped them through the process of coming and settling into Leipzig, or through nostalgia for their times in the city.

Others just found us while visiting or by chance, and simply remain interested in our international-minded articles.

Between 1 January and 1 July 2018, we received about 80,000 page views from 32,000 people in 166 countries.

Half of our users accessed from Germany.
