Owner description: Tierpark Berlin-Friedrichsfelde is open 365 days a year to its visitors from near and far - also on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. Covering 160 hectares this landscape zoo has yet to meet its match. Here await you spacious open-air enclosures for herds of hoofed animals, great expanses of water for waterfowl and flamingos, and impressive animal houses (Alfred-Brehm-Haus for big cats and tropical birds; the pachyderm house for elephants, rhinoceroses, and sea cows; the hummingbird and crocodile house; and the house for African primates). A visit to the snake farm presents you with one of Europe's greatest collections of venomous snakes in the one display terrarium. New additions to our facilities now cater to Asian and European mountain animals and Japanese macaques.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Some of the reviews below seem to confuse Tierpark with both the Berlin Zoo and Tiergarten. Tierpark does not seem to be as well known to British tourists as the Berlin Zoo; it was certainly much quieter when we visited. Tierpark is in former East Berlin (accessed via the underground station named 'Tierpark') and is like a large country park (400 acres) centred around a pretty palace in landscaped formal gardens that also has numerous large animal enclosures spread out amongst tree- lined paths and wooded areas. A lot of the animals are on little 'islands' instead of cages, which was nice to see. There is a land train which cost €4 and tours the park - you can choose to get off at any of the stops, or go all the way round, which took about 40 minutes. Some of the big cat enclosures were not as nice as those for most of the other animals, which were spacious and well landscaped but were being renovated. You need at least a full day to see everything - we didn't make it all the way around, as there is a lot of walking! We did get to watch a buffalo giving birth, which was pretty amazing and the elephants and polar bears were real highlights. There were also Manatees, which I hadn't seen before .There is an enclosure just before the entrance which houses some bears and can be viewed free of charge. The Park was excellent value for money - only €9 with the Berlin Welcome card. I think that a lot of people miss the Tierpark, not realising that Berlin has a second zoo, which is a shame, because it is definitely worth a visit.

“Der Englisher Garten”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Amongst the dust laden trails and the naked Germans, the gory statues and the victory monument lies a quiet part of the Tiergarten designated "The English Garden". Coots and Moorhen swim up and down a village pond, nuthatches investigate grubs beneath the bark of an oak tree and a cool German beer awaits you (or a cup of tea) in the tea house at the end of the garden. A lovely way to spend a morning in Berlin.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Went there with some friends after a long day walking around Berlin and it was just magical. What i loved about it was that it was not completely managed and pruned. We lay in the wild open grass in the sun for hours and walked around the entire park. Really was stunning.
