  • The animals looked extremely well cared For with amazingly clean inside areas as Well as huge outside space. It's a Good walk but well worth the monies! Love a zoo that's good for the Animals X  more »
  • Goods to the construction phase at the Zoo. Much locked. The Zoo is not all too big. It is through quickly. I have the enclosure not always Musican. Part too small. The Aquarium is the blast. Worth it! I feel too expensive 20 euro for the Zoo. But may be a matter of taste. I have seen the most beautiful zoo in Vienna.

  • The zoo was better then any Canadian Zoo I have visited. It was easy to navigate with the provided map. We were there for 4 hours and only saw 1/3 of what the zoo had to offer. Most of the outdoor areas the animals are on the other side of a large gorge/drop. There is very little fencing in the way. You get to see the animals fairly closely and safely. There are also inner areas if the animals are inside and not outside when you are there. We saw every animal we went there to see. There were also lots of baby animals to watch. What a great zoo for the young and old!
  • Berlin Zoo was actually a surprise and more enjoyable than I expected. Could easily spend quite a number of hours. The exhibits may not be as good as some more modern zoos but still there is a lot of effort made to make the animals as accessible as possible.
  • Wonderful zoo and very nicely laid out. Looked like they were doing lots of improvements as well and also getting pandas. The aquarium is also very well laid out. Fantastic jelly fish (apparently it's very hard to show jellyfish in a tank) worth checking out.
  • Best Zoo I've ever been to. Visited with my fiancé (we're both 21) and we really enjoyed ourselves. Only disappointment was that we only left ourselves 4 hours to do it in. This zoo could easily take up 6- especially with children. Animals all seem very well cared for and the feeding shows were great to watch (commentary only in German). Very reasonably priced for in the restaurants and the entry was good value too. Not to be missed on a trip to Berlin. Highly Recommended!
  • Wide range of animals that seem to be cared for the best way possible (considering that it is a Zoo). The wide walkways and the abundance of trees make it a nice, relaxing place. I personally expected the aquarium to be bigger, but it is also a nice part of the Zoo (and it can be accessed independently). Food options are relatively affordable and not bad. The entrance fee is fair, and they offer student discounts.
