Even after ninety years the most significant show aquarium in Germany is still a Mecca of biodiversity and history for aquarium and terrarium fans.

Since it opened its doors for the very first time the three storeys of Zoo-Aquarium have been presenting a section through the classes of fish, lower animals, reptiles, amphibians, and articulates around its heart, the Crocodile Hall, at that time the world's first walk-in animal enclosure for visitors.

Number of animals and species

With the largest number of species of its kind this building provides terrariums and aquariums for over 9,000 animals of almost 800 species. Today everyone talks about biodiversity. Here at Zoo-Aquarium you can experience it.

We took a combined Zoo + Aquarium ticket and visited the Aquarium having explored the zoo and were able to enter from the zoo side. The Aquarium actually compliments the zoo as it also holds the reptiles, amphibians and insects. All nice and interesting.

I'm not a fan of zoo's however as someone who keeps both marine and freshwater tropical fish I found this appealing. It has a good range of fish insects and reptiles too. What surprised me was it also had a good range of jelly fish on display too which are so beautiful to see. I would recommend this as a... More

Been to many aquariums around the world. This is small, set on three floors, yet still very enjoyable. Lift available for disabled and buggy users. Small cafe. Not enough toilets - very long queue! You can link your visit with the zoo (we didn't ). Good for a rainy day activity. €39 for a family of 4 ticket.

Short visit, expensive. That being said, I still wouldnt have missed it. First cylindrical aquarium I've ever seen. However, inside the cylinder, it was VERY HOT.

This is a good place to go on a rainy day. The aquarium is split in three floors with fish on the first, reptiles on the second and insects and frogs on the third. It's worth a visit, but can easily be skipped. If the weather is good, I'd pick somewhere outside in stead.

We visited the aquarium in March. At first I was skeptical about giving away 20 Euro (zoo included) but it was worth it. Ground level is full with fish, first with reptiles and second with amphibians and insects.. There is also a cafe on the first floor

The Berlin Aquarium is located not far from the Tiergarten and Philharmonic and sits adjacent (literally a door to) to the Berlin Zoo. It's laid out over 3 floors, fish, reptiles and insects. The bottom floor is probably the most impressive, with a wide variety of tropical fish, crabs, eels and rays - there's even a few sharks. I was... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. 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 theatres 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.
