Still innovating and adding new enclosures . The walks are very nice with plenty to see. Kids can have their fun in a dragon park, a former bear enclosure. A visit worthwhile and a year card for the ones living in Leipzig is recommended.

We visited as a large party (around 15 of us, with 3 children under 11) in December. The highlight of the visit was Gondwanaland, a large indoor part of the zoo. You can take a short boat trip around the inside, it costs an extra €1.50 and it was okay, good for historical facts of the beginning of the world.... More

The awesome place! Hope to visit it in Summer. There are a lot of different zones, such as tropics, where you may see a lot of tropical plants, birds and monkeys.

You can spend hours here and we don't even have kids. I just enjoy visiting the zoo in any city I go to. This zoo is better than I expected and I went in the winter. Definitely make a stop here, it was thoroughly enjoying and tons of animals!!

I went here several times, which is necessary because you cannot see it all in one day. The ape house is brilliant, one can observe the apes up close. The diversity of animals that one can see is brilliant.

I bought a yearly pass because I loved this zoo so much and went many times. The enclosures are really big for most animals and the visibility is really good- here are quite a few up close viewing punts where you can see the elephants bathe, orangutans play and hippos swim.. Gondwana land is amazing! It's just so cool that... More

Easily spent a full day from opening to closing here. The collections are quite extensive and the zoo is in the middle of an extensive renewal program, changing old style barred and bricked enclosures for ones that provide more natural habitats for the animals and which allow visitors a number of different vantage points. The renovated exhibits, especially for the... More

Looks like a large and well organized zoo, with a lot of animals and great spaces for animals. Unfortunattely, in the winter many animals were not available to see...not a good season to visit....
