Hints for printing only a part of the map (PDF files only): Zoom to the right size and select the right part of the map on the screen. In the Acrobat Reader go to "Print". In the 'Print Range' area select 'Current View' and in the "Page Handling" area choose 'Fit to Printer Margins' at the 'Page Scaling' select box. Select 'Documents and Markups' in the 'Comments and Forms' select box to print also the red numbers or the descriptions. Now only the requested part of the map is printed.
Please note: The whole city of Leipzig is part of a so called "Umweltzone" (low emission zone) and every car will need a green "Environmental badge". You can order it e.g. here before you travel to Germany and Leipzig.
