About Leipzig Zoo, Leipzig

Founded in 1878, Leipzig zoo is said to be one of the oldest zoo in the world. It was founded by Ernst Pinkert, who was eager to transform his restaurant “the Pfaffendorfer Hof” into a zoological garden. Legend says, nearly 4500 visitors came to see the opening of the zoo. Today, the zoo covers nearly 225,000 square meter land housing nearly 850 animals that include mammals, bird, reptile, amphibian and fish species. The entire zoo is divided into 6 themes like Asia, Africa, South America, rainforest of Gondwanaland, apes of Pongoland and the historical Founder’s Garden.

The list doesn’t end here. The zoo also caters as a perfect destination for many personal events.

Come and take a tour into the wild world of Leipzig.

Leipzig Zoo, Leipzig Reviews

  • Absolutely amazing.Great experience! It is a great place to go with family and friends. The Museum is absolutelly huge. You can easily spend there the entire day. I walked the entire place and it took us 7h to see everything peacefully. There are lots of cafes and restaurants around. It's a small Disneyland!

  • A great zoo, really large and some really nice restaurants too (marche). Large enclosures and more than enough to spend a couple of days watering around the park, thoroughly enjoyed

  • An extremely nice zoo, one of the few where u actually see the animals and they have quite a reasonable space. The only bad bit was the tigers and in general the felines area: contrary to what said earlier, here spaces for the animals are very small and they are not happy. Shame!

  • My absolute favorite zoo in Germany. Great collection, great enclosures and really nice staff. The Gondwanahalle is one of the most amazing tropical halls in the world. Definitely one of the top zoos in Europe.

  • Very good zoo in general. Animals are mostly treated properly with a lot of space to roam around. The zoo features a wide variety of animals, from different regions. Two downsides: 1) It's not entirely comfortable for people on wheelchairs, there are few places you can't access. 2) There is no specific route to follow, I went there twice, and ended up either lost or missing some sections on both times..
