This Zoomis a must when near Leipzig. The park is with a fine layout allowing the animals to have good space and also for visitors to enjoy watching them. You suddenly find that you have spent a whole day there. We did start early with a brunch a the restaurant with the palm garden just at the entrance. This gave... More

You would encounter parks where the animals have less ground to unfold and enjoy some " space". That said you will find parks where the animals seems to be in a better condition than in the Leipzig Zoo, ref the snow lepard. The park is dived into themes, you will encounter, tigers, elephants, lions, rhino and the lot. So if... More

I wasn't impressed at all. Most of the exhibits didn't have the animals in them. I was able to see fish, birds, and elephants but outside of that there was little I was able to see and it wasn't just that the animals were out of site. I presume they are not at the zoo anymore (conjecture). The location is... More

Normally I am not an enthusiastic visitor to zoos, but Leipzig Zoo is a really amazing place to go. It is situated close to the train station and city centre and therefore easy to reach. It is very big and holds wonderful attractions, for example an extra theme area for exotic animals; therefore even I spent a whole day watching... More

Dresden zoo has very good collection of various animals, interesting and systematic exposition. Especially bright is the tropical exposition in Gondvanaland. My but is connected to ... purchasing the tickets: one cannot buy the tickets with credit card (Mastercard debit+ card in my case) and it is quite inconvenient to go around with packs of cash money in pockets.

a city park no natural with a lot of space restrictions for the animals. Space is too small for some species.

We loved the city and wanted to spend more time in it. Our hotel was close to the zoo, so we decided to visit. It was fascinating. When you get the ticket they give you a map with the sequence to follow. You get into a journey visiting different areas. Some are very well settled and organized. They reproduce the... More
