History

The history of the region is influenced by the city of Leipzig. See there for more information.

The district was established in 1994 by merging the former districts of Leipzig, Borna and Geithain. In August 2008, it became a part of the new district of Leipzig.

Geography

The main river of the district is the White Elster, which also flows through the city of Leipzig itself. The area south of Leipzig is a big lignite day mining area, which will be recultivated as a lakeland in the near future. The lignite also made the area the main industrial area of East Germany.
