    Visit the Zoo

    If in museums I had my share of culture, in the zoo I had FUN! And I mean it... Some 14,000 animals of all possible and immaginable kinds: huge first floor terrarium with snakes and crocodiles, enormous aquarium, lots of other (less harmful) species such as pandas (my personal favourites), camels, horses, and you can see the 'Big 5' of Africa here (not in the wild, sic...) without spending lots of time flying over to Africa.

    The kids love this place for sure. In summer the trees give excellent coverage for walking around and there are many places to stop and get refreshments. There's a huge play area divided in two for ages up to 6 and from 6 to 14. (take DM1 coins for the cranes). There's also a 'petting zoo' where children can get close to ponies, goats, birds etc. The animal food machines take DM0.5 coins.

    Go for a walk or a picnic in Tiergarten. In the middle of this huge park is the Siegesäule, which you can see on the picture at the top of my page.
    Berlin is one of the greenest cities in the world. This park in the centre is an example. The park begins near Brandenburger Gate, where the wall used to be. There's a monument commemorating the people who died while trying to flee to the west.

    The magnificent oriental gate with its elephant sculptures was constructed in 1899 on the initiative of the then director, Ludwig Heck, and restored in the 1980s.

    A great "collection" of animals. The zoo has recreated its original habitat to make them comfortable and give you a better view of how they live.

    fish at aquarium

    The zoo and aquarium are a nice way to spend a few hours. Its expensive, 15 euro, for entry, but well worth it. I really enjoyed the fish.
