Have never seen animals so close before as used to the wildlife style parks of the UK but it is designed so you can see into all the enclosures easily without high fences. It was a bit confusing with the lack of maps about but we saw most of the animals and liked the closeness the enclosures gave, I never... More

we spent about 4 hrs between the zoo & aquarium, it was no better or wose than most zoo's in capital cities, the one thing that really annoyed me was the lack of a map, so you where left wandering around like a zombie not knowing where to go next, as a result of this we missed about 1/4 of... More

Amazing zoo. You can spend days there and never tire of it. The aquarium is also connected to the zoo and is a must see. One of the top rated zoos in the world. Don't miss it.

I love zoos. So it's no surprise that I enjoyed it here. The Polar Bears were the thing that go time in the door the most...but so much more kept me there and will take me back at some point. The zoo is very well set out and you feel very close tot he animals. We saw the most amazing... More

I absolutely loved Berlin Zoo! Compared to the UK zoos it was strange to be so close to the animals - you could have literally reached out and stroked the tigers, if you were that way inclined. (IE Stupid) I loved the cat collection - from the big cats, to the smaller ones like the sand cats. The nocturnal creatures... More

Nice new bird house. No printed park map available except in the park guide (5€). I always buy that style of park guides as souvenir but only when I leave. I don't want to walk a whole day with a book of 150 pages in my hands only to have a map. Signalisation is better than in Tierpark Berlin, but... More

You will need to set aside the best part of a day for this! It's a massive Zoo with lots of species. It is well laid out, although the lack of maps is a little annoying. It really is an excellent day out though and there is so much to see and do. Highly recommended for the very reasonable entry... More

One of the oldest zoo's in the world. We spend a full day, ending up with visiting the aquarium! What unbelieveble beauty!

Sort of your average zoo with plenty of different animals. Cages are a bit small but that is the best way to display so many animals in the midst of a city. Quite a bit of walking to get right around.

One of the oldest zoos in the world and one of the first designed to be more than cages, the Berlin Zoo is fun to walk around in. We loved the dinosaur frieze and statue at the Aquarium and the night animal building, but the signs showing where to find animals were terribly out of date so that the quest... More
