Great place with a large selection of animals for all the family. Great for an entire day out with friends and family. If you don’t mind be overrun with kids and large families, then it’s fine. The only downside is the lion who is on...More

The zoo is very big and there is so much to see! We spent about 3 hours and the anumals were out, there is a great playground, lots of places to stop and rest. I wish we could go back!

I always try to make sure the animals are ok. They seemed great there and I even got a special dance from one of the little birds. He liked my colourful dress :)

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.
