Walkers and animal lovers, do not miss the Berlin Zoo. It is in the oldest zoo in Germany that you will see the largest variety of animals: no less than 1400 species can be seen there! There are also several endangered species, such as the giant panda.
The zoo also has an aquarium that can be visited separately, but should anyway be part of your itinerary. Perfect for a rainy afternoon! If you’re lucky enough, you can even attend the dinner hour of some species. Schedules are posted at the entrance of the aquarium.
Because it is an old park (founded in 1844), the zoo is worth visiting not only for the animals it hosts, but also for its architecture.
The Berlin Zoo is open daily from 9 AM to 7PM during summer. It closes at 5PM during winter, and the aquarium closes one hour later, at 6PM, summer and winter.
The price is 12 € for accessing the zoo only, and admission to the aquarium is the same price, but you can save by purchasing a combination ticket for both attractions at the cost of 18 € . There are discounts for children, 6 and 9 €.
You can buy tickets in advance on the website of the zoo, they are valid until the end of the year.
