Berlin Zoo and Aquarium

Berlin Zoo and Aquarium

Watch our review of the Berlin Zoo, the Aquarium and the Tiergarten in this episode of our 360° video travel guide, and get some real insider travel tips.

Berlin Zoo

Unfortunately, quite a big part of the Berlin Zoo is currently under construction. So you can’t see any lions, other big cats, or pandas. Also, our insiders Marc & Manuel were unable to see any monkeys at the time either. However, the impressive thing about this zoo is, that you can get incredibly close to the animals, since the pathways are very close to the animal enclosures. They also sport a super nice “night animal” area and a really awesome petting zoo. To find out more about the Berlin Zoo click here.

Berlin Zoo Aquarium

The Berlin Zoo aquarium features some impressive fish, including sharks! The second floor of the building houses the reptile terrarium which shows exotic spiders, snakes, tortoises, and crocodiles! Although the cafeteria resembles an old, uncozy cantine, we do recommend seeing it. Especially if you are going to visit the zoo anyway, you can directly get a double ticket that includes the aquarium. To find out more about the Berlin Zoo Aquarium click here.

Tierpark

The Tierpark (“animal park” in German) is a mixture between a park and a zoo. Amongst the more impressive features of this Berlin attraction is an elaborate carnivore enclosure with tigers, lions and other wild cats. If you time your visit during feeding time, you will be able to see the animals from up close! Also, there are red pandas, gibbons (monkeys) and Secretary birds (one of which was a particular fan of us…). To find out more about the Tierpark click here.

All in all, we currently recommend going to the Tierpark rather than the zoo. This is mainly due to the construction sites at the zoo, and because the Tierpark had a much smaller crowd.
