Zoo Berlin is home to over 15.000 rare and endangered animals representing more than 1.500 species and subspecies. It is the most speciose zoo worldwide. Zoo Berlin is located in heart of Berlin, opposite to the train station Zoologischer Garten. The tasks our zoos of today are faced with are many and diverse. And there is more than one reason to keep animals. Since 1844 visitors to Zoo Berlin can relax and learn. Comparable with a living, green oasis the zoo today lies directly at the heart of the city. Here you can relax and learn new facts about the most diverse zoological subjects as your interest takes you.

Very nice attraction. There is a show with trainers and Roben, the Californian sea elephant which is quite amusing. It would be nice if there was a recommended path to follow like a guide signed with arrows to see all animals one after the other. There were some stinking or empty cages.

We had a great day out here. The twenty minute queue was worth waiting in as it's one of the best zoos I've been to. Most of the enclosures are quite accessible with high wired fences or viewing glass only where necessary. You're probably going to spend a lot of time on your feet, but there were lots of benches...

Really nice zoo with lots of things to explore. Entry price is 13 euros which is very fair. Entry to the aquarium costs 7 euros extra - very exciting with plenty of snakes etc. The zoo is very cozy with lots of trees and flowers.

Though I have not visited any other Zoo in Europe, I can confidently say that this is the best and most diverse zoo in Europe. It is very vast and have various breeds of every type of animals. We went early in the morning and it was simply not possible for us to cover everything in one full day. Couldn't... More

The Zoo is great value for money and a combi ticket for entrance to the Aquarium as well was only 19 Euros and you could easily spend a whole day exploring both. Most of the animals were a joy to see and seemed happy and had large enclosures but some enclosures seemed to be inadequate (the Lions and Penguins), it... More

I hopped off my "hop on hop off" tour to see this wonderful Zoo...it was worth it for sure. It is the oldest and best known zoos in Berlin and I must say it is the most clean and well kept zoo I have seen. I have seen many zoos but this one was my favorite.part of the zoo was... More

The Berlin Zoo was greately improved during the last decades. It is an old zoo, but It now looks quite new. In Berlin there are two zoos. One is at Friedrichsfelde in the East. That one is hughe. The other one is the Zoo in the City Centre West. It is far smaller. The Zoo West is better for families... More

Berlin Zoo is looking a bit tired, if I'm honest. Some of the animals looked a bit bored and their enclosures a bit sparse. The signage around the place is not too good either, making finding your way around a bit of a chore. It does not compare well with most UK zoos we have visited. On a positive note,... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
