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.

We arrived at the zoo pre-paid parking around 11 am. Having read the other reviews paid for 5 hours parking the cost was 14.5 euro! There was a long line at the ticket counters but we were lucky to notice a shorter line at one of the ticket windows and got the tickets in 10 minutes. The family ticket for... More

I've lost count of the times we've been at the zoo instead of church. Our daughter would never leave Berlin without a visit to see the animals. I was always impressed with the Condor aviary and wondered how the huge birds did their daily exercise. I also wondered about Robert Redford on a roof in Berlin in the film SpyGame... More

So many animals to see, could spend the whole day here! I went with my parents who both enjoyed the day, and I really like that the zookeepers have set times to feed the animals so you can watch them do so. They also have shows with some of the animals which are fun to see. Not too expensive either... More

It seems wherever we go, we go to a zoo!! Berlin zoo is great for all people, young old, small or large. It is a huge area and lots to do for everybody, some great animals and most that actually move and walk about rather than most zoos where the animals are dossile and just sleep all day! There is...

Although quite an old zoo the enclosures are being updated and so there's plenty of room for the animals. The animals are clearly well looked after, a few may look a bit sad but I think it's because some of the animals are quite old, which is a credit to the zoo that the animals live for a long time....

Well organized zoo, nice variety of animals and they take a good care for the animals. It is a little bit crowded, but you need to go early in order to have time to see everything there.

The setting of this zoo was different than what I normally see and gave a sense of continuity between us and the animals especially the friendly ones. A great place to spend a Sunday.

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.
