Real life features
Leipzig/Halle is just a small regional (yet international) airport. But it is the European DHL hub with 60 planes per night. The hub (warehouse, hangar and aprons) is modelled in the scenery.
Kursdorf - the village within the airport
Yes, that is weird. There is a village right in middle of the airport. So it's no surprise the number of inhabitants is shrinking each year. Once a thriving village with 537 inhabitants in 1950, they were down to 119 in 2006 (Wikipedia). It might be a little loud with the two runways, highway and express railways, but the transport links, hey ... The village is modelled in the scenery.
A highway and railway lines go straight between the two runways. Three bridges connect the terminal with the northern runway. The western bridge (taxiway W1) is used in both directions. The eastern bridges (taxiways E7 and E8) are used as one way taxiways. Due to safety improvements all bridges are equipped with special taxi lights. Due to changes in the TerraData the bridges had to be repositioned in 2012.
