The Großkugel industrial estate lies in the tri-border region between Saxony, Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt, by the Schkeuditz motorway junction, where the north-south axis of the A9 Berlin-Munich motorway crosses the east-west axis of the A14 Magdeburg-Dresden motorway.

Leipzig airport, with its freight terminal and GAT, is only about four kilometres away. Its tower is visible from the industrial estate.

Großkugel is part of the town of Kabelsketa.
