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

This is well worth a visit if visiting the city - we are not normally keen on Zoo visits but it was recommended as worth the effort. We were pleasantly suprised - the animals and plants are well presented in a very spacious and natural setting. The large size makes it a long day to see the exhibits (we had... More

I have seen a lot of zoos, but I admit, this is the best one (even better than the one in San Diego). There has been a lot of effort to bring it up to the level as it is today. There are several areas separated by continents / regions. All of the compounds are very nicely arranged and some... More

Great zoo, with good natural grounds for many animals, particularly the monkees and big cats to roam around in .It also has Asian elephants, a good aquarium and many birds and animals, some which I'd never heard of. Godwanaland is an area under a huge dome with many Asian and African animals and plants. It also has a river and... More
