a city park no natural with a lot of space restrictions for the animals. Space is too small for some species.

We loved the city and wanted to spend more time in it. Our hotel was close to the zoo, so we decided to visit. It was fascinating. When you get the ticket they give you a map with the sequence to follow. You get into a journey visiting different areas. Some are very well settled and organized. They reproduce the... More

We bought tickets from the tourist office to avoid any queues but they were quick and small anyway. Its walkable from the city centre but there's also a tram stop right outside "Zoo" and its only 2 stops from "Hauptbahnhof" The zoo is one of the biggest and best in europe and has recently opened a huge covered tropical glasshouse...

super Zoo with facepainting, great playgrounds and petting zoo. My children really loved going here I think they enjoyed the boat themed playground the most. Unfortunately we did forget to ride the camel. The food wasnt all that wich is common in zoo's. It was a great day for the kids.

While I usually have a very bad conscience when going to the zoo, seing the animals in such horribly confined spaces, Leipzig Zoo gives a certain feeling that the animals might not be as totally bad off. Most of the compounds are huge and very diverse in landscaping (e.g. the islands, rivers and trees of the great apes or the... More

Don't make the same mistake we did and think you can fit this in during the last few hours before getting back on the train! We thought 3 hours would be plenty of time, but ended up rushing through the last section. So much to see. It's well laid out, with each area representing a continent. Gondwanaland is an absolute...
