This zoo is different from anyother zoos I've visited. The animals seemed pretty happy to be in cages for our good entertainment. Of course it is not the kind of activities that is gonna make you a more cultivated person; but it is funny (especially the bonobo part) and easy to take. The place offers good curry würste and delicious... More

Huge place and all so natural, all animals in their habitat, places to take a break or eat. A special part of the zoo is Amazonian sector with tropical climate, rivers an man made jungle.

My wife and me we love all kinds of animals, wild or house-type, birds or cats or fishes, African or Australian or South-American, thick od thin, small or huge, black or green or multi-colored, hungry or satisfied, shouting or being silent. The zoo in Leipzig is a wonder-world with so many fantastic houses, gardens, facilities for a huge amount of... More

Very nice ZOO with thematic section. I like the most the Latin America part with free lizard and boats. Also elephant section is beautiful. Really nice for a walk. I think ticket costs around 14EUR.

An absolutely outstanding zoo with its tropical dome the undoubted highlight. The staff are caring and diligent and the zoo is set in attractive, open parkland, offering the opportunity to see an impressive range of animals - many highly endangered, such as the Amur leopard - in very attractive surroundings. Wonderful day out.

We were in Leipzig for two days, and believe it or not, we went to Leipzig Zoo both days. First of all, we didn't realize how big it was. There was some construction going on by the entrance, so my first impression wasn't so good. But once we discovered the tropical parts of the zoo and the number of animals... More

Nice zoo, plan at least a whole day to visit. We visited in the winter (January) but there was enough to see. Also go to the tropical part. The boat-trip is a surprise :)

Big, modern and diverse! On a cold january morning we visited the zoo led by the foorprints of different animals cemented in the pavement. This zoo is transferring from an old classical city zoo to a very modern one, so lots of building is going on. The finished parts are beautiful, the elefanthouse is a good example (with a pool!),...
