We recently visted the zoo while in Berlin, there are so many animals to see and we had a brillinat day. The zoo is very clean and the animals very well cared for. We loved the Lions, Tigers and Rhinos! The Aquarium was also excellent. The park is a little difficult to navigate as we were not offered a map... More

The zoo is truly huge. It took us a good portion of the day to get around. The place is clean, the animals appeared cared for and the shows were entertaining. I will definitely go back.

We visited Berlin with 3 children and after seeing many of the sights we spent a day at the zoo. We weren't sure this is what we wanted to do because we were in BERLIN. We found it to be a nice change of pace for the kids. They enjoyed strolling through the zoo to see all the animals. It... More

The animals are packed together and most of them show signs of insanity as they pace there small cages. This "zoo" is a horror story. I'm not normally against zoos but this serves as nothing more than a money machine where the owners do not care at all for the well being of the animals. So sad. So horrible.

Nice zoo but nothing sensational. Main attractions are bears, lions and tigers. Symbol Zoo panda died in 2012. You can buy a combined cheaper ticket with access to the aquarium. This zoo can visit but there is nothing to what you get back.

Excellent collection of different species of animals. This was the first time I saw an orangutan. The aquarium was also great. Take 3 to 4 hrs at least to see everything because navigating through the zoo itself will take a lot of time. Try to download a map of the zoo from the internet before you visit. It is very... More

The kids loved it, the hippo, the elephants, and of course the lions. We met them when they were eating from the inside it was very up close. Also there was the slide at the play ground, the kids really enjoyed themselves. Down side, the drinks were over priced.

We got to the zoo just before opening time and after going in had the place very much to ourselves for about an hour. We paid 50 Euros for a combined ticket for the zoo and Aquarium for 2 adults and 4 children which is not a bad deal. The only thing that was strange is that they don't give... More
