The Zoo is without doubt a frequently visited place for old and young
Founded in 1844 by Prussian King William IV, the Zoologischer Garten is Europes oldest zoo. With 13,000 animals and 1,400 different species, the zoo is also one of the world's most popular. The nearby Aquarium opened in the 1930s.
You can visit both with a combined ticket (Euro 16.5)
Location : next to Zoo Station in the heart of the western city centre. I mentioned this name already a few times in my report : Budapester Strasse - near Tiergarten
Kim and I had a great time here - except the food and drinks, but this is another story, look at my restaurant page

Berlin Zoo is home to Skippy the kangaroo, Pretty Woman the gorilla and Kiri the elephant, to name just a few. Other attractions are the nocturnal animals and a pair of Chinese panda bears, although Yan-Yan's lack of sexual interest in her partner Bao-Bao has been talk of the town for years! During my visit Yan even didn?t show up.

Address: Hardenbergplatz 8, 10787 Berlin
