  • We decided to visit the zoo for the pandas. We made a bee line for the pandas first which was a good thing because we only had to queue for 10 minutes and later the queue got a lot longer. The pandas....  more »

  • A nice zoo with mostly decent sized enclosures. Some of the animals looked a little sad (I'm not an expert though so it's just my opinion) but the majority all looked all looked well looked after and happy - it's always going to be difficult to fine a balance between enclosing animals and providing enrichment for them. The food was a bit expensive, but nonetheless pleasant.
  • A great zoo is so good for the soul. Loved our visit. Hard to believe you are in the heart of the city. Unfussy and plenty of space to appreciate all the species there. Such a delight to be holding on to Autumn in such a great green space. Good value too with the Welcome Card.
  • Was a great day! Probably the best Zoo I have ever been to! Right in a great location in Berlin was across the street from our hotel. Spent the better part of the day there. Great variety of animals some I had never seen or heard of and the aquarium and marine life section was outstanding.
  • Best Zoo I've ever been too. Enclosures are both indoors and outdoors. Looks like the animals are well kept. Plus everything is close not loads of walking from A to B. Went in December and the Zoo was pretty empty so able to see all animals without crowds pushing and shoving.
  • The most amazing zoo i have had the pleasure to visit. Beautiful grounds, clean, lovely environment for the animals and visitors. Plenty to see and do. The animals and enclosures look well maintained. Lots of seating to relax and enjoy the sights. Café and snack huts dotted around (huts closed in the winter) could easily fill a whole day here. Suitable for families, couples, disabled access and easy to locate.
