The southern floodplain forest in Leipzig's Connewitz district is home to one of the city's most beautiful recreational areas: the Leipzig Wildlife Park. About 25 animal species and up to 250 wild animals from Central Europe live in a 42-hectare area.

The Wildlife Park is an attractive destination for families with children, since all the animals are easy to observe in their extensive enclosures. The green area reinforces its status as a centre for recreation with its numerous cycle paths and hiking trails, along which visitors can explore the forest and discover its inhabitants. Playgrounds and the park restaurant round off your excursion to the Wildlife Park.
