New Anchor Tenant At URW´s Paunsdorf Center: Leo’s Abenteuerpark Expands Leisure And Family Entertainment Offer

Leo’s Abenteuerpark GmbH is building a new indoor adventure world for children on an area of 4,000 sq m at Paunsdorf Center in Leipzig. The adventure park is scheduled to open in spring 2025. As part of the sector trend leisure and entertainment, Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) Germany and Leo’s Abenteuerpark are strengthening the location’s profile as a family friendly and experience-orientated shopping and leisure destination in the region.

Extensive renovation work has already begun at Paunsdorf Center, including a new escalator to the 2nd floor. Leo’s Abenteuerpark will create around 40 new jobs at Paunsdorf Center in addition to the already existing 2,100 jobs.

“We are currently positioning Paunsdorf Center even more concisely as an experience-oriented shopping and leisure destination with regional appeal,” says Constantin Wiesmann, Director of Leasing Austria & Germany at URW. “The partnership with Leo’s Abenteuerpark is an important milestone in this context. We are increasing the variety of offers in the center, providing new impetus in the important leisure and entertainment sector and creating a new attraction for the city of Leipzig and the surrounding region.”

Pedagogically valuable play and movement concept

The concept of the internationally established Swedish market leader is based on a high-quality educational approach: children should have plenty of opportunities to let off steam and fulfil their natural need for exercise.

“Physical activity is extremely important for long-term health. Nowadays, many children no longer feel their natural urge to exercise because they can hardly find suitable exercise programs in their environment that they also enjoy,” says Joakim Gunler, founder and CEO of Leo’s. “This is where we come in: Here, children between the ages of one and twelve can climb, romp, slide, play football and have fun on trampolines or in ball pools in a safe environment and in a spacious area. Playing together is particularly important and strengthens the children’s social skills.”

Parents also have the opportunity to hire various themed rooms at Leo’s, for example for children’s birthday parties, making them an unforgettable experience full of fun, games and exercise. Catering options with fresh food and a souvenir shop are also part of the Leo’s concept.
