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.

Despite of the fact that I feel sorry for all the animals trapped in a zoo I really liked the variety of all these animals and also the aquarium which is a 3 level worth visiting.

Awesome zoo with a huge variety of animals. Has discounts for students. Be ready to get really tired if you want to visit every corner of the zoo :)

This zoo was a lovely zoo with such a great variety of animals. Absolutely huge zoo with lots to see and very funny animals such as the monkeys being cheeky and entertaining to watch their ways of life. Very good price for what you get to see. However my group and i felt that some enclosures seemed unfair. Huge elephants... More

This zoo is nice cause it doesn't make you feel that the animals are in cages, living a poor life. (except for the lions and other carnivores, that were in cages...) It was really nice to feel somehow connected with the primates, cause only a transparent glass were separating and we were actually staring into eachother's eyes. It was also... More

Berlin zoo is awesome. We try to go to a zoo wherever we go and berlin zoo is up there with the best. Yes there was some empty enclosures. But the animals they do have and the types of enclosures they have allow for some great viewing. The goats in the petting zoo are a must. Great day and not... More

Berlin Zoo is definitely a must see if you get the time. There are lots of animals to see and I'd recommend the Aquarium too. We didn't realise however that most of the animal houses close at 4 o'clock so unfortunately missed a few. I'd recommend at least half a day is required to see the whole zoo. There were... More

A beautifull zoo with a lot of different animals, lovely how they combine indoor housing (good views for visitors) with outdoor areas which are more like the natural habitat for the animals. On the other hand probably the last time I visit a zoo, since it's always a realisation that we shouldn't keep animals in captivity...

Great value especially with discount card but all the birds were not on display for health reasons. I didn't see any notice to the effect outside the zoo only at the bird enclosures. Lots of construction going on.

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.
