I have already been to the Zoologischer Garten and decided I would visit Berlins other zoo the Tierpark Berlin-Friedrichsfelde. The Zoologischer Garten may be the oldest zoo in Germany and may have the largest collections of animals but the Tierpark Friedrichsfelde covers the largest area for a zoo in Europe at 160 hectares. The zoo came into existence because the Zoologischer Garten was in the western part of Berlin. So this zoo in the eastern part of Berlin was opened in the former grounds of the Friedrichsfelde Palace in 1955. The Palace has been renovated and has colourful well laid out gardens. There are spacious enclosures for the animals with a number of different animal houses around the park. After walking around for 5 hours and still not seeing all the exhibits I decided to try and find my way out. This zoo is so large that I spent the next 60 minutes trying to find an exit, so be warned.
