Zoo Leipzig, Leipzig

(4.5/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
One of the world's elite parks, Zoo Leipzig opened in 1878 and now has nearly 850 different animal species. The zoo prides itself on its collection of big cats and its enormously successful breeding program. The internationally renowned enclosures and exhibits resemble real, wild habitats. Wind your way through six different regions: the Founder's Garden, Gondwanaland, Asia, Pongoland, Africa, and South America. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. The 22.7 hectare (56 acre) zoo's efforts toward authenticity mean the walking paths are often made of sand or soil.

  • Goods with friends around Christmas time in Leipzig Zoo. Of course the Gondwanaland with its primeval discoveries, as well as the beautiful Aquarium building was especially nice this time of year. Also, more animals in the outdoor areas were to be seen than expected despite the cool temperatures. The Leipzig Zoo is a discovery for me again and again.
