an illustration & interactive visualisation of the leipzig tram network

inspired by the many (millions of) tram rides & chats about tram schedules with a little but very eager enthusiast.

the map visualises the leipzig (germany) tram network & its currently active tram lines 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15 & 16.
the public transport is part of our everyday work & schoolrun. however, my son's enthusiasm for trams, trains and busses began way before school and even kindergarten. in fact, when he was just a tiny 4-month old, we were on our way back home, riding tram 4, when the tram announcement made him laugh as hard as a baby can laugh. i guess, the magical friendship was born then ...

when we're looking for a school and took him to the individual open days, you can guess, what one of the arguments for his current school was: "we can ride the trams and trains EVERYDAAAAY then. YESSS!" well, now we do and he couldn't be happier. he's even very happy at school, which is kind of more important, although, he's not interested in this argumentation at the moment. ;D

anyways, WIN WIN & thanks leipziger verkehrsbetriebe for taking us there and back again every day and for all the maps we now have at home and the friendly train attendants who answer just any and every question he has.
