The zoo has a huge number of animals and keeps on going to improve the environment for the animals. Most parts got renovated in recent years and show that they know and care how to treat animals well. At the moment the old bear cages are remodeled.

This zoo is amazing, our daughter loves it. It is so big that I wish they would have let me in with my bike! ;) They have so many animals there so such a small city like Leipzig, the Gwadwana land was amazing. Highly recommended if you have children.

The Zoo is very well located in the heart of Leipzig. It is a wide ranged area with plenty of different animals. We could see most of them there. But it must be said that most of the animals cages are really dirty and do not seem very comfortable.

The monkeys... More

Take a lot of time to visit the Leipzig Zoo. There is so much to discover and it is a spacious area. You should see it with your own eyes. Apart from the large variety of animals you´ll find beautiful trees and exotic flowers all over. There is a place where butterflies fly around and another one with monkeys jumping... More

Very nice in overall despite of lot of construction works being realized. I appreciate mainly the surrounding the animals are living -large spaces, lot of water, lot of green and nature.
