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.

Unusually easy to find your way around, with a simple map provided that helps you arrow in on any animals you particularly wish to see. The animals are clearly well cared for and shown in as natural environments as possible within the limitations of space. Many of the enclosures give you the opportunity to get up exceptionally close to large... More

Nothing to dislike here. The zoo is pretty comprehensive with well laid out areas and plenty of room for animals to roam etc. Watching the hippos under water was particular fun. The cafe was good value and a welcome watering hole - lots of tables outside. I also visited the aquarium.

We have been to many zoos over the years and this one does amazingly well for its inhabitants given its age and city centre location. One of the polar bears seemed unhappy (that horrible pacing) but otherwise all the animals appeared content and well cared for. The hippos were amazing; the water is very opaque but you can still see... More

Very clean and tidy enclosures, lots of variety of animals to see, few places to eat but we were out of season so maybe more outlets in season, rate this as one of the better zoos that I have visited throughout the world

I loved Berlin Zoo, it was big and clean, and the exotic house and aquarium! We spent nearly 6h in the zoo. The best part for me was the Aquarium, never seen such a animals, fishes and other creatures in my life. Stunning, definitely worth to go! Entrance is 12 Euros just for Zoo, but 20 Euros will be including... More

The collection of animals is amazing covering every continent. They are all well cared for and have ample room to move around, I have never been as close up to a Tiger as I was during our visit, separated only by the glass viewing panel!! There is so much to see that you need to spend more than one day... More

The food choices at the zoo were, on our visit, pretty awful. Nothing in the main restaurant for vegetarians and in the smaller cafes, it wasn't too good either - surprising as Berlin is a vegetarian/vegan dream for shopping/dining. Still, an overpriced slice of cheese pizza later and only the lions were louder than my belly. Recommendation - take your... More

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.
