Mockau is a priority area of Leipzig’s integrated urban developement. Therefore, municipality and urban policy aim at increasing the sustainability and the qualities of the district Mockau. The neighborhood management Intigra+ Mockau is involved in the implementation of measures on behalf of the urban development concept Mockau 2030+. The management supports local participation and forms networks for local partners.

The measure started in 2017 as a pilot project under the name “INTIGRA” and is continued up to date. Bürogemeinschaft Gauly & Volgmann (bgh.) has been commissioned with the implementation of the neighborhood management. Further information can be found here.

Colorful Summer of Mockau

In 2024 the “Bunte Mockauer Sommer” will take place for the seventh time, during which the green area in Essener Str. was used by the city of Leipzig, numerous local clubs and institutions with various activities for several days. For some impressions of the last BMS follow the link.

The idea for Bunter Mockauer Sommer arose from the desire to create a (temporary) meeting place for the people of Mockau and to establish a network between the facilities. At the festival you can find play and creative activities for children and young people, besides locals offer informations and discussions on relevant topics for the neighborhood as well as various cultural activities.

The next Colorful Summer of Mockau will take place from the 14th to the 16th June 2024.
