Tierpark Berlin-Friedrichsfelde is open 365 days a year to its visitors from near and far - also on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.

Covering 160 hectares this landscape zoo has yet to meet its match. Here await you spacious open-air enclosures for herds of hoofed animals, great expanses of water for waterfowl and flamingos, and impressive animal houses (Alfred-Brehm-Haus for big cats and tropical birds; the pachyderm house for elephants, rhinoceroses, and sea cows; the hummingbird and crocodile house; and the house for African primates). A visit to the snake farm presents you with one of Europe's greatest collections of venomous snakes in the one display terrarium. New additions to our facilities now cater to Asian and European mountain animals and Japanese macaques.

They should turn it into a Safari Park. There is no point Berlin having two zoos now it is no longer divided. The one in the West can stay as the world renowned Zoo and this one is easily big enough to be made into a Safari Park that you drive round with the animals relatively free to roam. Otherwise...

Huge is the best word describing this zoo. They say it's the biggest in Europe and you can definitely see it. It feel rather like a huge park with animal habitats scarred from time to time in it. Camels' enclosure seems to be bigger than whole average zoo... Unfortunately it's former West Berlin, DDR zoo and you can see it.... More

This zoo is great fun for kids and adults. The park is huge with lots of different animals to look at; but there is also chances to get closer to the animals such as feeding the goats. It does require a lot of walking as the space is huge although there is a bus that can take you round the... More

Tierpark Berlin is a really nice place to go also with kids. There is lot of green space between all those animal spots and you need either a whole day there to see everything or you split your visit and come more often. ;-)

This is the second of zoo of Berlin and also the biggest in Europe. When you are searching for some peace then this is a place to visit. In the big place lots of species but some exhibits need refurbishments like the big cats who are in very smalle spaces. Other where very good like the ones with the deers... More

I liked this zoo; it turned out to be way bigger than I expected actually. We didn't have that much time so we couldn't see all the animals before the zoo closed. It's a large area. The atmosphere in the zoo was very peaceful as there were not that many visitors at that day.

With it's 395 acres/160 hectares, Tierpark Berlin is the largest zoopark in Europe...this translates to a great deal to see, but also a lot of walking (there is a little zoo train which doesn't cover the whole zoo though). So comfortable shoes are essential here.:-) And bring something to drink and maybe eat too (especially when visiting with kids); considering... More

We visited after weighing up between this and Berlin Zoo and decided on Tierpark on the basis of being able to see a few species to suit our interests more. We had visited Leipzig Zoo two days previously which was maybe not the best idea as it was the best zoo I've ever visited and maybe set my expectations a... More

Not as famous as it's west Berlin cousin but actually the bigger of the zoos and has it's own stately home (Schloss Friedrichfelde) in the same grounds. More locals than tourists generally too.
