We spent approximately 5 hours in the zoo, there was some construction work which was happening which is unfortunate. Pongoland was the best area for us in the zoo, there was even a baby ape playing with me through the glass holding his hand on the glass; when I placed mine on the glass. It was very empty in the...

This Zoo is simply amazing. It's obvious their care for animals is sublime! The areas where the animals are located are spacious (when compared to other Zoos - space for wild animals is never too much), of great beauty and with plenty of water (wherever applicable) for the animals to refresh of themselves. The Gondwanaland is worth the admission cost... More

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. The cages for the european birds and a couple of other animals are... More

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.

I can only congratulate Leipzig Zoo on what they've achieved and are continuing to do here. I visited with a friend of mine, and we both work in animal health and welfare. We were very impressed with the enclosures, animal enrichment and obvious dedication to conservation. The animals all looked healthy, relaxed and happy - and testament to this were... More

You have love this zoo for what it is, different. The outside layout and design may not be better the berlin zoo. But the path is designed to keep you in line to see everything which was a nice plus.The special exhibits are where they shine. I liked the tropical dome they built which is really well done. 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

Gongwanaland, new extension of one of best Zoo's of Europe, makes Leipzig Zoo worth to visit always -- whether it rains or shines.
