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.
It is the biggest zoo in Europe in terms of the territory. The entrance fee is 13 euro; combi tickets for Zoo and Aquarium are 20 euro.
THE ZOOLOGISHER GARTEN AND AQUARIUM ARE WELL WORTH VISITING WITH OR WITHOUT CHILDREN.
IT DATES FROM 1844.
I know it sound boaring, but this is one of the nicest zoo's i've been to. Beautiful combination of garden and animals. Excellent show of trained sea lions.
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.
At the heart of west Berlin is the zoologischer garten, there are loads of hotels here, it's next to the Tiergarten the zoo and the train station for Potsdam.
This zoo entrance is a gift form the Chinese around mid 1800's. The zoo in well known for its many animals and large area and gardens.
You can spend a whole day in Berlins Zoo. I recommend buing the complete ticket and also wisiting aquarium. A must see.
Oh, BTW.... Dogs are not allowed.
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.
there's tower in the centre of Tiergarten, theheight of the tower is 67 meters,
the golden statue"Victoria" expresses victory of war ,
The Berlin Zoo, located in the Tiergarten, is one of the oldest Zoos in Germany. It dates back to 1844.
The zoo is open April to October daily 9am to 6:30pm; November to March daily 9am to 5pm.
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.
I came across this palce by accident while trying to find the Soviet War Mamorial in the Tiergarten. The Haus der Kulturen der Welt serves as a forum for different world cultures.
