Really enjoyed our trip to Berlin zoo. There are lots of animals and the highlights for us were Panda, hippos and artic wolves. There was space to walk around and the animals looked well cared for.

Well worth a trip, it’s very big and has loads of wildlife and stunning scenery. They’re is a great monkey house which looks very comfortable for the monkeys there. A nice walk around and very well laid out.

Honestly this was the best zoo that we have been to and we have been to zoo's all over the world. We can't fault it one bit. It's a must see and very reasonably priced.

Going here I expected for it to have conservation purposes for the animals - this was not the case. Purely money making, the animals are kept in small spaces with a large drop if they attempted to move further. I felt particularly distressed to see...More

We had a lovely day at the zoo, seeing lots of beautiful animals. We bought a ticket for the zoo and the aquarium and both were amazing. Great value for money and I’d definitely recommend going.

Although this zoo is perhaps not perfect, it is a most enjoyable place. Its extension is vast. There is a lot of green, also water. The animals are always precious to see and to watch, so you can learn a lot. Do not miss the...More

3 days in berlin (5 Replies)
Hi, We will be in Berlin for 3 days next month. I have done some prelim research on the net but most of the itinerary on the net seem too crammed.Will we be able to do Brandenburg gate, Reichstag, Berlin Zoo, Berlin Television Tower, GendarmenMarkt, Berlin Cathedral,Charlottenburg palace, Museum Island, Berlin Tiergarten, Check point charlie, etc within 3 days? Is there any must see place that I have missed. Any info would be useful. Regards, S

Perfectly possible. In fact, you could do the Tiergarten, Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate and TV Tower in one (long) afternoon. Other places of interest might be the DDR Museum and the Topography of Terror. Does "we" include any kids?

Berlin vs. Leipzig vs. Hamburg zoo (2 Replies)
Hello, Me and my wife ar planning a trip to Germany in the beginning of august and cannot answer a question which zoo is the most woth time visitting: Berlin's (if Berlin which ome of 2 zoos), Hamburg's or Leipzig's? We have read that Leipzig zoo was rated as the best one in Germany however is that so? According to wikipedia, Berlin Zoological Garden (not tierpark) has the most animals and species, whilst Tierpark is just bigger.

They are all excellent. Choose the one which fits best into your itinerary. Will you be visiting all 3 cities anyway?
