Berlin Zoo and Aquarium
Meet Knut the polar bear at the Berlin Zoo, along with a massive variety of marine creatures at the Zoo Aquarium.
Berlin’s zoo celebrates diversity, from pandas to rhinos, and protects, studies and breeds the world’s most comprehensive collection of species.
Many of the enclosures are historic and re-create a range of enclosures, from carnivores to birds. One of the newest enclosures is the glass-domed Hippopotamus House.
At the adjacent Aquarium you can see tiny jellyfish and huge crocodiles, reptiles and tropical fish.
Germany’s oldest zoo is in the heart of the city off Kurfürstendamm, entered via the lovely Chinese-inspired Elephant Gate on Budapester Straße.
The closest subways are Zoo and Kurfürstendamm stations.
