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.

I can not believe the amount of excellent reviews I have seen on here for this place! I do not know what they are seeing when they are walking around this hell hole of a zoo. As soon as I walked into this zoo and saw the gorge that a rhino has carved by walking around its enclosure due to... More

We wanted to do something else than just wandering around Berlin, and the zoo was a great choice. It's rather cheap (€13), and has a lot of interesting animals. The only reason I won't give it five starts is because there is almost no information in English. I would like to read a bit about the animals, and not just... More

One of the best zoos I've ever been to. Make sure that you have at least six hours to visit this enormous and a very interesting attraction. You can not only see polar bears, lions, monkeys, wolves and other animals, but also watch their feeding and shows. The children might like a petting zoo where they can feed baby animals.... More

This was a great zoo. We went on a lovely day which made it better. Living in England going to zoos means you are behind fences or barriers. Berlin you can touch and get closer which is great. Seeing the animals close up is great. My girlfriend is a massive animal lover. She loved the big cats (which were behind... More

This is a big collection of animals which will take all day to see thoroughly. Like most city zoos, there is no space to expand, so enclosures for many larger animals (elephants, big cats etc) have become too small and unacceptable for zoo animal welfare standards of today and tomorrow. At some point they will have to bite the bullet... More

Traveling with a 10 year old, you have to do things like go to a zoo, from time to time. We had read that Berlin's was one of the best and we now have to agree. Unlike American zoos, there are low or few fences to block your view of the animals. They use natural borders like ditches and water... More

As soon as we entered through the gates of the zoo, we were wowed.. Every part of this zoo was so beautiful. Many, many different species of animals... Our 1-year old daughter was really having the time of her life (as was her dad :))

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.
