NEW Bikes

With our new bikes the rental and return is much easier and faster than before. The integrated lock opens automatically via app. When you close the lock, the rentel will be stopped automatically. If you just want to make a short stop, you don't need to return the bike - you can park it via app. For that, you just activate the parking mode in the app and close the lock afterwards. Please don't rent the bike from afar, because the lock will open immeditey.  


From now on you can return the bike everywhere on the highlighted public spaces you can see on the map. You can easily check it in the nextbike app: on blue highlighted streets, at official nextbike stations and at LVB-mobility stations you can return the bike for free

If you return the bike within the pink zone you will be charged 1€ extra. The basic rate at 1€/30 minutes is still valid. 

If you return the bikes outside the blue or pinke zone, as well as beyond official stations, we charge a service fee of at least 20€. Returning the bike outside of public places and streets, for instance in private ground or in parks, is not allowed. Also please return bikes in a way that no one else feels hindered.


For only 10 € per month you can ride 30 minutes for free per rental.  For longer rentals the basic rate applies. The monthly rate is only valid in Leipzig and is effective from the day of booking for 31 days.  Afterwards it extends automatically, if nor canceled two weeks prior to termination. 

You ahave a nextbike account yet? Please register again on the website or via nextbike app and choose "Leipzig" as your hometown. Afterwards you can book the monthy rate. Please also note, that you need to log in to the app with your new log in data.
