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.

Nice break in the shade

Berlin temps close to 30 Celsius but we were able to cool off in shady zoo. Favorite animal exhibit was the group of pigs! No American zoo has all these species.

Pretty modestly priced so difficult to complain, Many of the animals look thoroughly miserable and the place was much smaller than we expected but easy to get to and a pretty decent way to while away a couple of hours.

Don't plan to stay less then a day, especially if you want to see Aquarium too. Also, be sure to buy your tickets online to avoid staying in queue, which can be definition of long, specially on weekends.

Lovely Zoo with great exhibits. Well planned for the guests. The enclosures for the larger animals seemed too small. Really nice play area for kids.

We have been quite a lot in the zoo and do enjoy it every time. This time we have also taken a combi ticket to visit the aquarium and we were really surprised, as it is perfect. We have spent a long time in there and enjoyed every minute. Must say, it is better than Sea life in Berlin and... More

Really wished I hadn't gone, elephants didn't have a lot of room, such a small area for the orangutans...the smallest I've ever seen....dirty water for the animals to play in. Most of the animals didn't seem happy....it was absolutely heartbreaking. The park itself was beautiful, the food was priced ok, bathrooms were clean.

It was the best place to visited in Berlin last week. Especially I liked aquarium. If weather is nice and you like animals - no chance to regret this attraction.

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.
