About the International Womens Club of Leipzig

Our primary aim is to promote international friendship and provide a welcoming platform for English-speaking women arriving in Leipzig, whether for private or professional reasons. We support and encourage networking amongst our members as well as offering opportunities for cultural exchange through our diverse program of activities.

Coffee and Chaos is our monthly members meeting and speakers series, usually held on the second Friday of each month from 9:30 am – noon. At C&C we listen to interesting guest speakers, engage in conversations, and connect with fellow members. The doors open at 9:30. During this time members check in, get their name tag, get a drink- coffee, water- chat with fellow members and finally find a seat. At 10:00 we start our meeting. First, we welcome everyone and allow guests to introduce themselves. Then, our guest speaker is introduced and they share with us valuable knowledge about their field of expertise. This usually lasts 40 minutes with a 20 minute Q and A. At 11:00, we thank the speaker and take a 15 minute break. Then the member meeting portion of C&C begins. Here we talk about upcoming events,  sign up for monthly activities, and catch up with one another. It is the best place to meet us and learn about our club. Come join us at our next Coffee and Chaos!

Upcoming Events


By supporting local charities we foster and strengthen our bond with the city of Leipzig. The charities we support are the Women’s Shelter for Homeless Women (Übernachtungshaus für wohnungslose Frauen), and the Women’s shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence (Frauenhaus), Teekeller Quelle, and UNIKATUM children’s museum.  Our involvement with the local community is invaluable in underpinning our sense of belonging.



The easiest way to join us is to come to Coffee and Chaos– our monthly meeting or one of the evening Meet and Mingle events. Newcomers are welcome to participate in two IWCL events before deciding to become an official member, so scour the calendar and join an activity!
