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.

I was very surprised by the caliber of the Berlin Zoo. Many of the "houses" allow you to observe the animals in ways that most other zoos don't allow. Plus, their big cat house brings you as up close as you'd ever really feel safe doing with the big cats.

Superb visit to this zoo, allow at least 4 hours to enjoy it a leisurely pace, friendly multi lingual staff all around on hand to offer advice, support or share their knowledge. Good queuing times despite the height of summer, and extremely resonance entrance fee for adults, a rarity. Lots of lovely breed and animals all seemingly happy and in... More

The Berlin Zoo is big, we spent about 5 hours there, and old. One of the oldest zoos in the world, worth to see, but when I think about the small cages and living spaces of most animals, it´s just sad. They really need to modernize the zoo and cut down in species to make up some space for other... More

This zoo is the best I have ever visited. It is located just a short walk from the train station and is well signposted so you won't miss it. Inside the zoo is huge with thousands of animals and lots of different species,some that you don't normally get to see at most zoos. All the animals are quite close to... More

The Zoo and Aquarium are connected so if you want value for money get a ticket for both. There is a lot of walking - as with all zoos! But lots of fun spotting the animals. There seemed to only be one food place throughout which was packed so I would suggest taking snacks if you have kids. Allow a... More

Obviously if you disagree with animals being in zoos... don't go! However, a huge range of animals! You can actually get up close with them and there are shows put on if that's your thing. Fairly cheap, think it was about £15. RECOMMEND!

My partner and I visited the zoo in April 2015, the weather was beautiful, but I think we would've spent just as long there if it wasn't. The animals had so much open space, and you could get far closer than at many zoo we've visited in the past. There was a fantastic variety of animals, and loads of information... More

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.
