Many areas of the zoo are parkland. Loved the Meercat enclosure. Food available in several locations, as were WC's for families. Lovely play areas for kids.

It's a must while visiting Leipzig. I have been there several times. Great place not only for children but also adults. The tropical island and boat trip are somethings that must be tried. Be aware that you need to have a bottle of water with...More

An old Zoo that has evolved with the times so that it has it's own biosphere they call Gondwanaland. The huge roof that covers a big chunk of the area is entered through a tunnel. We had a coffee in an oriental style restaurant and...More
