  • After three days of tour goodbye visit to the Leipzig, we opted for a visit to the Zoo. The course is lovingly prepared and offers much to see and to marvel.

  • For guests come only once in a year to Leipzig certainly quite pretty expensive, but for Leipzig, I can recommend only one year card and then just go during the week in the afternoon for 2-3 h and again intensively enjoy another corner. In the winter in the Gondwanaland make even packed picnic.
