Im not a great fan of going to the zoo, I think they can be quite cruel and bad for the animals. However I must say this zoo is great, the animals have loads of room and are really well looked after which really shows. Some of the small animals are free to go anywhere they want and I almost...

Went there in bad weather, and really enjoyed myself. There is a huge area that is all inside, and its a lot of fun for adults and kids. Even a little boat ride. Best part though was the domestic cat that was living with the giraffes.

Took my 8 year old here when I could see she needed a break from history or museums. She loved it. It's a great zoo. Had a nice afternoon.

This is a great zoo (one of the best zoos that I know of). Good selection of animals. Many modern vivarium, only a few encircle the old everything will disappear by 2020. With Gondwanaland, a giant tropical hall, one of the highlights of a plant with giraffes, gazelles, zebras, have been added to pongoland already exists, a system with all... More

We had a guided tour round Gondwanaland, a covered and heated area. The kids were fascinated by the variety of plants and animals and certainly enjoyed the boat ride.The zoo is massive and we did not have time to see it all.

This is a great place to host a meeting or event with a difference. Excellent corporate facilities in a unique and "wacky" environment.

The zoo in Leipzig is a great place to visit, especially with children. There are many enclosures which are modern and allow for an adequate environment for the animals. The highlights include the Gondwana land tropical enclosures (more prepared families had light summer clothing and availed of the changing rooms and lockers before entering to enjoy the tropical humid atmosphere,...

compared to the Stuttgart zoo Wilhelma, the Leipzig zoo is probably not bigger and doesn't have comparable botanic gardens. However, the Gondwanaland in the zoo was really excellent. An indoor adventure with boat ride, animal and restaurant. The animal feeding was also very interesting. I won't say this is a zoo comparable to San Diego or Bronx, but if you... More

I have never had as much fun in a Zoo in my life! As an animal-rights advocate I was impressed by the spacious cages and well-fed animals!

This zoo has been our kids playground for many of the weekends in the first year we lived here. Beside the amazing variety of animals, the sceneries in which they are to see lead your journey from one land to the next, inside as well as outside, and you'll soon forget that the city center is within a couple of...
