The Central German Metropolitan Region is one of the so-called metropolitan regions in Germany. It is centered on the major cities of Leipzig and Halle, extending over Central German parts of the states of Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and Saxony. The Central German metropolitan region is the only one entirely located within the new states of Germany.

It is not actually a metropolitan area in the geographic sense of the word as an agglomeration of nearby urban areas, rather it is a loose affiliation of towns and cities whose representatives vote upon new members. For example Jena joined the Metropolitan Region in 2009.
