  • One of the best Zoo which is located in Hardenbergplatz, Berlin, Germany. The Zoo where we can see varieties of Animals. And fully covered Plants & Animals. Quite love watching & observing the Animals. Truly it is like Adventure. Recommended to visit!
  • There is a reason it one of the top Zoo's in the world. The animal selection is huge and the lay out is very nice to walk around in. There is playground and restaurants all over to ensure the kids stay happy and you can eat something, and you will need it because you will spend your whole day here. I can only recommend 2 visits to ensure you can take your time and see it all.
