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.

Disappointing. Ok, it was wet but there is so much building work and closures due too bird flu, it meant that effectively it was a nice park and gardens with Wild storks nesting in the grounds. The flowers were very pretty but otherwise there was very little to see in the way of animals. We thought that there would be... More

Before i start, just to say that i have recently been thinking about zoos, in general, after decades of not being bothered about them either way, not being in one for about thirty years (i am mid 40's). Anyhow, recently i decided to correct this, and went to my Local London Zoo, and felt it was, as an experience, surprisingly... More

Wet Thursday on March, so expectations fairly low .... But failed to meet even those. Almost no birds could be seen - excuse is bird flu. Lots of building work so no predators, pandas and do on. A couple of giraffes, few elephants and some cattle and pigs. Expensive disappointment. No imagination, no attempt to make up for lost exhibits.... More

My daughter had never seen Polar Bears as London Zoo no longer houses them so wanted to go and see them and she wasn't disappointed. Lots of the park was being renovated and all the birds were locked away because of the bird flu problem and it was a shame not to have seen more animals but those that were... More

Plan on spending the day here if you can. There's a lot to see. Try avoiding rainy days because this Zoo is big and a lot of walking around outside. You want it to be nice weather. Really beautiful and relaxing. Something for everyone and there's a play ground area for children. You can bring in your own snacks and... More

Recently spent a morning here, great selection of animals. Birds currently shut away understandably due to current bird flu issue and large amount of building work happening. When fully open i think you could quite easily spend all day here

Lots to look at and the aquarium is an added bonus, we spent most the day here. Tickets were €19 each which had access to the aquarium also. Some enclosures were better than others but the reptiles and aquarium enclosures were beautiful. Worth a visit, Cafe not very good for food but ok if your just grabbing a coffee. Pricey... More

I am always rather ambivalent about zoos these days. Too often, animals are kept in spaces that are inappropriate and too small. Sadly, this is the case with Berlin Zoo. Many of the animals semed listless and some kept retracing the same route over and over. Even the polar bear was literally swimming circuits in her relatively small pool. Thinking... More

As a zoo keeper back home in the UK, one of my main things to do when abroad is visit the local zoos. Firstly - although I am a bird keeper, and mainly came to the zoo to see the birds, we found that the birds were mainly off display, due to the bird flu crisis in Europe at the... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood 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 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.
