One of the best zoos I have been to (eg. Sydney and Singapore which are both great) plus it's directly in the city. Large areas for the animals especially the elephant, primates and African areas. It takes a good day to explore all of it....More

Zoos around the world should take note. This is a great model for what a zoo should be! Wagons and blankets for the kid, playgrounds at every station, arts and crafts, and always staff around to answer questions. I was impressed.

The Disney World of zoos! We planned to spend a few hours there but there was so much to see we stayed for the whole time. It was wonderful and well taken care of.

Visiting Leipzig, the last location we would normally visit is a Zoo because we've seen some unfortunate ones. Not here! This is a Collection of well planned enclosures = clearly 'happy inhabitants'. A pleasure to visit. Lunch was great too.

Animals nowere. I saw only 20 animals. The rest of the zoo was empty. Too many guests. My shoes were dirty after it because people don't look around and just step on you or drive a baby stroller into you. Food was very bad. (French...More

Does no matter what weather appears: visiting the Leipzig Zoo is worth the money. OK, it is not cheap but what you can experience for the entrance fee is really extraordinary: The zoo is offering separate theme areas: highlights are Gondwana-Land, African Savana, Pongo-Land etc....More

One of the most popular family attractions in Leipzig, it is best to get there as early as possible. Although a bit pricey (21Euro per adult for a day ticket) it is worth every cent. The zoo is huge and one day is hardly enough...More
