If you want to get out of the busy city for a while, Berlin zoo is a good option. You can relax by strolling around and observate varius animals in a well kept and clean zoo. Lots of interesting species and you can watch them closely and easily, because there are low fences with moats around most of the areas.... More

Must see the Berlin Zoo. I loved it! There is plenty to see for the whole family. The zoo is nice and clean. The park is big but easy to get around. Take your camera with you and enjoy the day :)

Great place to visit when you need some time of from the city. Most of the animals has roomy space and it is easy to see them. Easy for the smaller children to see as well.

This zoo is must visit for everyone. You feel as if you are not in Berlin :) It will need 1 complete day to see all animals properly and enjoy company of theirs. Carry sufficient food , water as you don't want to spend time searching for restaurant inside zoo. Suggestions: 1. zoo authority must not allow smoking inside the... More

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
