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.

The place was nice but the zoo is smaller compared to Copenhagen Zoo. Not ideal to go during winter since most animals were hiding.

I've been to different zoos among the world, but that was the best I've ever seen! If only I lived in Berlin and could visit it on daily (or at least weekly) basis! And I was told year pass to it costs only 60 or 80 euros - that is literally nothing! Highly recommended to everyone. Must see in Berlin!

The problem with inner city Zoos is that space is limited... So also here! Especially the polar bears are completely displaced and in way to small pits

My girlfriend and I went to Berlin zoo during January 2017. We found the zoo to be very entertaining. There was a wide range of animals and plenty to see. We did over 10,000 step without realising and had a nice tea in the cafe. The zoo is getting work done and will be getting pandas for summer 2017 which... More

We arrived when it was snowing and so the zoo was very quiet, could only see one other couple for the first hour so got to explore alone which was great! The variety of animals was astounding and the enclosures were very spacious! The monkey area is a must see!! The staff at the front gate were also extremely helpful... More

The Zoo is amazing, with a lot of animals and it is very large. We spent like 4 hours in the Zoo. If you have time spend more time there enjoying the sun and there are a lot of benches and you can relax.

The zoo is a typical zoo in terms of the animals it housed. The nocturnal area (accessed from the big cat house) is great, the animals are hilariously funny to watch. It was good to have many inside areas for visitors, especially when it's so cold outside. The whole reason I went to the zoo is to see the polar... More

One of the best zoos we have visited ever. Doesn't look appealing from the outside but once you start to visit the various enclosures well worth the entrance fee.

Quite a large zoo. I was most looking forward to the aviary and of course to my bad luck it was closed and they ddnt inform us on paying full entry that it was closed. We paid for the zoo and aquarium together just over 20€ each. Many animals ddnt seem to be out . But there was some impressive... More

We visited the aquarium and zoo. Even though we thought there was a Panda bear, we still had a great time. It was very cold and all the outside restaurants were closed. There were some animals outside though and we didn't want to miss. We then moved inside to see the orangutans and apes during their feeding time. What a... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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.
