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.

The Berlin Zoo is an easy going zoo where there is just short walks between animals. It has many places to sit, and distances are not long. Great number of trees makes it also nice to visit on sunny days. I would have wanted a bit more space and quiet areas for the children to more sit an relax a... More

The zoo was a nice day out. Very big and lots to see. Reasonably priced at €13 for adults for the zoo and €20 if you include the aquarium as we did. It was well with worth it. We ate in the cafe but it's probably a better idea to bring a picnic with you as it was expensive and... More

Fantastic Zoo, great lay out with a great children's play area. The Zoo is great value for money and is even cheaper if you have the Berlin Welcome Card.

The Zoo is clean and organized. It's really like all the others that I saw... the only difference is that they have an underground part (animals of the night) not many ... but different and strange.

The grounds for the zoo are very nice. However, the "zoo" aspect of the zoo is not. In my view, there are two kinds of zoos - 1. zoos that are about education and conservation and 2. zoos that are about displaying animals. the Berlin Zoo is about displaying animals. Although there are some enclosures that don't look too bad,... More

Very cheap tickets only €13pp for adults which I was amazed at considering the amount of animals they have at the zoo! This is only for a day ticket for the zoo as we didn't visit the aquarium. Loved our day at the zoo. The weather was unpredictable so it was nice to have the option of viewing the animals... More

After riding bikes for a good while, this was an enjoyable spree. Many interesting animals and well set up for visitors. many of the animals were out of sight hiding in their cribs. All the animals seemed well taken care of. We had a lot of fun watching the elephants getting hosed down before going in to their dwellings. Also... More

The weather was nice the day i visited the zoo with my extended family, we enjoyed the walk and the wide range of animals and the kids enjoyed the play area, the aquarium and the many ice cream stops.

My boyfriend and I had a great time in the zoo! However, you need a lot of time because of the size of the park - we were there for 4 hours including a short lunch..!

I've been to my fair share of Zoos worldwide & this one makes the top two!! (The first prize going to Melbourne Zoo!) The Setting in the park, the easy Access & reasonable Price are all great reasons to visit. Excellent day out for families & a break from all the history in Berlin!

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.
