This place is a wonderful example for seeing how people's money are used for the good of men and animals at the same time! The zoo is changing every year, new structures, new facilities, it's never boring!

Renowned zoo of Leipzig has a great range of animals from 4 corners of the world; the recommended walk through the zoo is circular, but rebels as we are, we took the path in the counter sense with my daughter, - and didn't regret. The zoo offers some great sites of rare animals (African Okapi or Amur Tiger - see... More

Set right in the Western parkland of the City, this zoo is very easy to find, the tram stops right outside the main entrance to a Zoo that has a positive outlook to it's future planning. The Elephant enclosure is very spacious and the Savannah parkland uses the parkland to its best. The Tropical enclosure which is the latest development... More

absolutely fantastic zoo with vast areas for the animals, and still lots of possibilities to see them wherever they are in the large spaces. Giant indoor exhibit with plants and animals from several continents

A must seen in Leipzig, not only for kids. We spend three hours in the heat but we loved it. Great area and you could spend a day there. I will come back !

We live in NYC and go to the Bronx zoo quite often. It's a fabulous zoo and quite large. We make it a point to visit zoos in many of the cities to travel to because my 7 year old son LOVES animals and is fascinated with nature. I share these details only to give a perspective on our experience... More

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
