  • As Leipzig not only an absolute must in the trade fair city. Leipzig zoological garden is a perfect example of a 21st century Zoo with its large, modern and clean facilities. The visitor is kidnapped in the various regions of our world. As main attraction the Gondwanaland, the largest indoor tropical Hall is worldwide, to mention. Due to its vastness is staying well and like to plan half a day (or more).

  • I know the Leipzig Zoo since I was a kid, and find great what he did for a development. It is done everything to ensure that the animals are kept as humanely, you get too many animals to face, even if it is only 2 hours takes time. Ticket prices are completely justified, and as Leipzig a year card worth it of course. The nurses do a great job and have an open ear for questions. The only smear I would make refers to the gastronomic offerings, it better and above all cheaper.
