The zoo is ok, but just ok. It is quite large but could be set out better. There is a zoo guide available for purchase (€5) which seems a bit expensive since most zoo's around the world include a map/guide in the ticket price. It is a very old zoo and still kinda has the feel that the animals are... More

I visited two times in two years and still I could not see everywhere. You need to time to visiteverywhere in the zoo. Take your camera and dont forget took photo. There are places to drink something. If you are going to Berlin, you have to spare one day for zoo if you like animals and have kids.

Clearly I missed the death of the panda last year. However the rest of the zoo is good on the whole. Ponds/waterways need attention as full of pond weed and some pretty smelly. Could also use more signs for directions especially as they don't give out a guide. But the animals are the reason for coming and only zoo (... More

Disclaimer: I live in San Diego and have an annual membership to our World Famous San Diego Zoo. My husband decided he wanted to visit he zoo and aquarium in Berlin to see what foreign zoos were like. It was pretty underwhelming, and the conditions of the cages, spaces and lack of natural environments was actually pretty sad. It is... More

We visited in early July. The park is beautiful & green and provided much needed shade on a hot day. There wasn't a lot of animals but the ones they had all looked healthy. Their habitats were clean and nice sized. The aquarium is attached but it's an additional fee. It's worth buying the package at the front door. The... More

This is a really good zoo with a lot of animals. We spent an entire day here, be prepared for a lot of walking. My kids liked that a lot of the animals are not in cages so you can see them better

We spent an afternoon here with friends. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. A lot of walking. Many animals but beware the Panda had passed away. The only thing that prevents me from giving the Zoo and Excellent rating was my concern for the space the animals had. I know this Zoo was laid out long ago but I'm sure... More

The Berlin zoo was just amazing. The zoo is HUGE so wear comfy shoes and reserve enough time! the Panda had died in 2010 according to the zookeeper so that was a bit dissappointing as the ad we saw showed the panda but still a great day! one major CON in the zoo was the information given during feedings etc...

Berlin Zoo - is such place where the set of lovely creatures of the nature is pleasant to take a walk, have a rest and to see. For example, I for the first time in life saw alive tapirs, an Asian rhinoceros and a two-month elephant calf. Animals here contain in open-air cages without lattices and are perfectly visible.
