Once you made it to the Boitzenburger Land and did the Boitzenburg Castle I recommend, to keep the car parked at their free and very comfortable parking lot, and take a greater walk through the little, and romantic town of Boitzenburg. It's a very lovely, little spot with a few of nice restaurants and cafes. Benches are a good few for taking a break and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Shopping options are very little.
Unfortunately there's no tourist office in Boitzenburg as anyway there are very little informations translated in English, as of now. Yet there is a web page that does provide English written informations, even pretty detailed, and mentioning that Boitzenburg Castle, houses a family hotel with horse riding facilities.
Considering this tiny place zoo, is probably not correct, yet it's still a nice, zoo like enclosure where little kids can pet goats and other small animals (in company with their parents). It's a natural kept animals' housing.

Restaurant Wirtshaus Zur Klostermuehle serves traditional food, classical-German, home made. Their specials are trouts from their pond (they do fish breeding). The restaurant's yard & outdoor area provide with a most lovely area, and much joy for kids. Keep in mind the back roads are not smooth, beware of many bumpers along your way through the yet beautiful and almost untouched landscape.
The easiest way to get around, is by car. There are several highways that connect Berlin with different German regions - all leading through Brandenburg/and Boitzenburger Land if that is the desired destination. In addition, there are well maintained roads. And many bumpy back roads too. Public transport to many rural destinations is poor (and so are the smaller streets leading into the different towns). There are a few railroad connections within Brandenburg and there are public buses, but travelers should check timetables for connections. wikipedia
Verkehrsverbund Berlin Brandenburg = VBB covers 30.000 square kilometres, making it one of the largest public transport associations in Europe.
Keep attention when you steppin' downstairs to the beautiful chocolate factory at the Boitzenburg Castle since there's really no space left at the entry.
