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.

I came to reunion with a young Syrian family in exile from war in Aleppo. We reunited in Berlin for a first family vacation. My young friends, the parents, had also never seen a zoo. Zoos don't exist in Syria, so it was a must...More

I think it's the best zoo in Europe, small size, numerous species, organized to properly show the animals

The Berlin Zoo was beautifully designed for walking, but lacked signs helping a non-German speaking traveler locate regions of the zoo that contained the animals one was looking for. It was hard to locate animals even though there was a map provided that was not...More

Spent 3 hours here. Was a great experience. The only downside was when we were there a very heavy thunderstorm took place and the rain was horrendous. A great day for families.

We were excited to come here since we have read so many good opinions. Really - people who say it is the best place in Europe have not visited many places! To sum up: well taken care of and clean but squeezed into the middle...More

This is one of the most beautiful zoos of Europe. Everything is well tended. The walking distances are quite large if you plan to see all the animals. Try to attend the feedings. Especially the one of the gorilla’s and the seals is worthwhile. If...More

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

I'm pretty sure that you can't. Inadvertently we exited a side gate and it was only with reluctance we were allowed in again.
