Current restrictions

Berlin Zoo will be even more beautiful in the future.

Dear visitors,

We currently have one large construction project going on here at the zoo.

1. Due to the conversion our Predator House is closed at the moment and you can not see tigers and leopards. Even the nocturnal house is located in the middle of the construction site and can not be visited. With some luck, you can see our lions Amira and Aketi in their outdoor enclosure (opposite the aquarium). Cages will be replaced with habitats that recall the animals’ homes in the wild, giving visitors a whole new experience of our big cats. This fascinating world of feline predators opens at Zoo Berlin in summer 2019!

Unfortunately, keeping the zoo’s facilities up-to-date requires occasional periods of construction. But both the animals and you, the visitors, will benefit in the long-term from the work that is currently underway. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and are looking forward to presenting both you and the animals with spacious new enclosures once the work is complete.

2. Our baboon rock is getting more beautiful! So that our hamadryas baboons can climb, romp and relax even better in the future, we are converting their enclosure currently. During the construction, the animals are housed behind the scenes.

Thank you for your understanding, and enjoy the most species-rich zoo in the world!

Your Zoo-Team
