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.

I see a lot of positive reviews for this zoo and I hate to soil the party but I did not enjoy it at all. It is expensive and the staff are not very friendly. It is old-fashioned, and although I liked some of the...More
