  • Really nice and compact zoo, cute. Enough coffee shops to take a break. The predators' house will be opened until aummer 2019, but maybe you'll see a lion outside. The aquarium is a must!!! It was abs...  more »

  • We had already read good reviews about this zoo and indeed expectations are not dashed, a wide variety of animals inhabit this park, well-groomed and with ample spaces, do not miss the Aquarium, Reptile House and Insectarium

  • This is an extremely fun place both for children and adults alike. One gets to see a variaty of animals and at times get a very close encounter. The aquarium is a must visit. Information would recommend dedicating four hours. From our personal experience (two families with 5 children ages 2 to 12), it would be great if you can have some more time there. We spent just about six hours and had to make a shortcut so we can spend an hour and a half in the aquarium.
  • Very lovely zoo, not so huge as I expected but still big enough. You can see many workers busy with their job unlike in other zoos. Animals look well fed and taken care of. There are a lot of species to see and some of the animals you can see so close that you get a tempting feeling to touch them :)
  • Great place for all ages. Would recommend going there on days when it’s not as warm since the animals were all lying down trying to rest/cool down when I went there. But overall the experience was great, it is a huge place and there are so many different animals. They also have an aquarium which is a must in my opinion. It costs a bit extra but that place is huge and has lots of reptiles, fishes and bugs you can watch. Absolutely my favorite part. There is one small downside, and that is once you’re inside the zoo, it’s cash-only in most (maybe even all) if their restaurants, or places where you can get ice cream or drinks to cool off.
  • One of the best zoo's I've been to. The panda was the highlight of zoo, but they have many other big animals. Great place to spend a Sunday when in Berlin especially for the kids. It took us about 4 hours to see all animals. And I recommend buying the ticket for the aquarium as well. I wasn't impressed by their fish as much as for their reptiles and insects sections.
  • Me and my boyfriend went to the Zoo of Berlin today. The zoo is beautiful and full of places to sit and rest. Lots of animals were active and playful, even though it was a very sunny day. The food was also great and not too expensive. We had a really great view of all animals except for the wild rare cats, that I had really hoped to get a look at.
