I loved the Berlin zoo, had the desire to go there for a while....had read reviews that the animals were in really small enclosures....turns out thats false....although at first sight it does seem so. But the enclosures are quite large, just that they are sort of compartmentalized...so that there is an open area and a covered area and things like... More

Excellent zoo, with lots of different kinds within each animal group. Loads of different types of monkeys-very entertaining. Very well kept and clean. Only issue is disorganised queuing system-there are four ticket booths, with one very long queue for the two right hand booths, which does not feed the two left hand booths, which as a result have a very...

This Zoo is big, but easy to get around. Nice and clean all over, and a lot of attractions. Its centrally placed in the middle of Berlin.

On previous visits to berlin we did not bother with the zoo, expecting it to be just another city zoo. It is not, it is in my opinion the best, unique, a must see. As an attraction, Berlin zoo provided us with 6 hours of solid entertainment for 18 euro each. In addition, it extended our knowledge on several groups... More

The zoo is a lovely space and big enough to keep the kids happy and amused for a whole day. The food is pricy for what it is though so bring a picnic and it was too much for us to do the aquarium as well, so take a little extra time and bring a packed lunch

We tried going there around lunch time on a Wednesday, but the queue was roughly 150 metres long. We had the luxury of coming back at another time, so we showed up again five to nine the next day. This worked out great, and we were among the first people entering the zoo that day. We had a great time... More

The zoo is huge. We practically spent the whole day there. There are a wide range of animals but alas no panda. The enclosures were great as there were very few bars so it looked like their natural habitats. It also meant that you could take some fantastic photos. They don't give out maps so take a photo of the... More

We spent around 3.5 hours here. It was great!! I loved it, but I love zoos. Great selection of animals. However, they do not have Panda's! The food was not bad inside.

This was one of the best zoos I have ever been to. It was worth the money, due to the amount of animals that were there, and it was worth paying a little extra for the aquarium. We spent most of the day here, and were amazed to see how different this zoo was from the ones back in the... More

My partner and I had a great day seeing both the zoo and the aquarium. It is only 20 euros for a joint ticket to see both of them. The zoo is well spaced out and the animals are clearly well looked after. It is definitely worth taking a day to visit it, and we will visit again.
