About the ZOO
Opened in 1844, the ZOO in Berlin was the first in Germany and the 9th in Europe.
During the years of its existence, it witnessed to changes in the political circumstances, demolitions and post war reconstructions and today is still among the most beautiful ones in Europe.
Over time, the ZOO has been divided into two ZOOs and one Aquarium (that also has a long tradition), but they all under the agreement are maintaining and developing each special character.
Both ZOOs are homes to animal species whose diversity and rareness is a unique and non-approachable by any other city in Germany and Europe.
When you enter the ZOO’s property first thing you’ll notice is that it’s a wonderfully kept wildlife and botanic secret that is yet equipped with everything that you’ll need on your visit – playground, restaurants and shops – that fits to a great time you’ll spend there with your family.
This oasis of peace, nature and wildlife is proud of thousands of species of animals and every new member is kind of star in Berlin, as most Berliners are aware of the news of a new arrival.
