Fodor's Review

Even though Knut, the polar bear cub who captured the heart of the city, is sadly no longer with us, there are 14,000 other animals to see here, many of whom may be happy to have their time in the spotlight once again. There are 1,500 different species (more than any other zoo in Europe), including those rare and endangered, which the zoo has been successful at breeding. New arrivals in the past years include a baby rhinoceros. The animals' enclosures are designed to resemble

their natural habitats, though some structures are ornate, such as the 1910 Arabian-style Zebra House. Pythons, frogs, turtles, invertebrates, Komodo dragons, and an amazing array of strange and colorful fish are part of the three-floor aquarium. Check the feeding times posted to watch creatures such as seals, apes, hippos, crocodiles, and pelicans during their favorite time of day.

Forget the Pandas in Washington, DC - Go to Berlin

This is a very nice spread-out zoo. Easy to find - right across from the train station. There are many animals in large, open exhibits.

A great way to wind down after foot slogging the city - no mean cats in this haus.

A MUST visit when in Berlin. My first visit to a Zoo in 20 years and WOW what an experience!
