An excellent place to spend a few hours. However I missed the 2 lions that were shot the week before I arrived.

It is a nice zoo, located in central Leipzig and accessible by public transport. There is a huge car park across the road. The zoo is beautifully arranged and very well maintained. There is a nice cafe as well.

We spend an afternoon at the Zoo. It's one of the nicest zoo that I have ever seen. The primate area is the best (but that is a well known fact). Terrarium is fairly small and as expected, animals are difficult to see. It would be nice to have more descriptions (in English) and photos. Nevertheless, if I was back... More

Prepare a full day in this zoo. Gondwanaland is superb! They also have a nice playground. The Restaurants and Kiosks are also good.

Leipzig is by far the nicest zoo I have ever visited. It is well spread out so that the wide variety of animals have plenty of space, and it also mean that you get to spend a decent amount of time looking around.

You can spend a few hours or a whole day here. Walking paths are wide, lots of shade, plenty of washroom facilities and a lot of places to sit, to have lunch or.snacks. The animal enclosures are large and.viewing areas are good for the smallest of children and tallest of adults.

Had a day out at the zoo today, quite expensive to get in and restaurant was pricey too. Had to pay to park and had to queue for a table in the restaurant , not all the animals were out and a lot of cages were empty.
