  • The best zoo I've been in my life! When we got in it started snowing we couldn't see any animal (and we got angry). But suddenly we saw two Greeks and they told us that animal were inside. We went...  more »
  • I visited the zoo in Berlin before the lockdown. It was an unimaginably beautiful trip. The zoo facilities have been beautifully designed. Just a walk through the animal enclosures is a worthwhile...  more »
  • Extraordinary. We were actually staying very near to it so wanted to explore further & didn't get a chance to enter but if you go into the shopping centre next door, it has a huge window overlooking.....  more »
  • One of the best Zoo which is located in Hardenbergplatz, Berlin, Germany. The Zoo where we can see varieties of Animals. And fully covered Plants & Animals. Quite love watching & observing the Animals. Truly it is like Adventure. Recommended to visit!
  • There is a reason it one of the top Zoo's in the world. The animal selection is huge and the lay out is very nice to walk around in. There is playground and restaurants all over to ensure the kids stay happy and you can eat something, and you will need it because you will spend your whole day here. I can only recommend 2 visits to ensure you can take your time and see it all.
  • I loved this zoo, so traditional. I loved the Panda and as you can see the Rhino mum and baby. Lots to see everywhere but thought the poor polar bear was so depressingly sad. Best part for me was the bird enclosure you can walk through as they are free to fly above your head.
  • If you get the zoo map from tourist/information center, it's really easy to get around the zoo. The staff is really helpful and friendly. One of the coolest zoos I've ever been to. (Don't forget to check the animal feeding times so you can see even more)
  • Great and beautiful zoo. I think it's one of the most beutiful ones I ever saw. It's very close to the centre and easy to find. Many different species and love the part where you can walk into the cages of birds and goats. However, I do feel the streets are put randomly so you end up walking more than you should. Also, many cages were under construction.
