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.

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.

Leipzig zoo was one of the big surprises during the Germany trip. The park is amazing if you have enough time to see it. Very impressive was the Gondvanaland - possibility to experience the real tropical climate and see the animals. We were surprised how much room the animals had in the park and how many of them were unleashed.... More

We went there to visit indoor tropic park. We were surprised by very few animals unleashed there. They could have put at least more birds in it ! So this was negative, as well as: - very few animals otheriwse visible - they refubrish a lot, so you can't spot animals easily - extremely limited eating - we found only... More

Visiting Leipzig for the day from Berlin we decided to go to the Leipzig Zoo. It is truly a must if you are in Leipzig and have the time. The park is well planned with the different areas for different regions where the animals come from. The animal enclosures are very well-maintained. The biggest downfall is the fact that the... More

Very nice park. Strollers and toddlers on the weekend, but wonderful exhibits and animals; suggest going during feeding times or early morning, later afternoons. Very impressive covered exhibits which are humid and warm - superb for the winter months. Nicely laid out with lots of walking paths. Plan on spending at least three hours just to get a glimpse of...

I love zoos but the Leipziger Zoo is certainly one of the most beautiful ones. If you have been able to see them on TV it makes a visit even better - try to find "Elefant, Tiger, and Co". They will provide a lot of information about their animals and it is just neat if you have seen it on... More
