Zoo Berlin is home to over 15.000 rare and endangered animals...

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 zoo is very different to any zoo i had been to before. Very open spaced but not as many animals as you think given the size of the zoo. Definitley more of a garden vibe

This was the highlight of my last day in Berlin. Such a great zoo and lots to see! The animals are great! Lovely walk. Took us around 2 hours and half to do the entire zoo. Only thing is if you don't want to see animals looking mental and not happy then im afraid its not for you. Other than... More

One of the largest zoos I have ever been to, it is quiet and a great place to come for a peaceful day. I was glad I had the opportunity to come here, as I do not live too far away.

Worth a visit. The zoo and aquarium are in the same place but you pay separate to each. The zoo was €13. The monkey enclosure was great and so too was the nocturnal exhibit.

Avarage small ZOO with small cages. Kinda overpriced admission fee. The ZOO itself was kinda nice but cages were really small and not many animals were there. It's in the city center so you can easily reach it by public transport or bike.

I ignored it during my first visit to Berlin. But this year I decided to visit it as the last time I did visit a zoo was more than 20 years ago :) While I was not sure if I will enjoy the visit or not as I'm not a little kid anymore the excitement and joy I was seeing... More

We visited on a freezing cold snowy day, This actually added to the experience, So well laid out. And the animals looked very well kept and clean, sumtimes this can be missed from other zoos. Great price to get in too, only 20 euros.

Excellent way to spend a half day walking the extensive site of the zoo which is located near a main shopping centre and with good train and underground links

Thank Philip A

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
