Current restrictions

Berlin Zoo will be even more beautiful in the future.

Dear visitors,

  • due to urgent construction work, the Lichtenstein bridge has to remain closed from January 6th, 2020. Kangaroos, capybaras and the other animals beyond the channel are looking forward to your visit in mid February again.

  • due to the conversion our Predator House is closed at the moment and you can not see tigers, lions and leopards. Even the nocturnal house is located in the middle of the construction site and can not be visited. Cages will be replaced with habitats that recall the animals’ homes in the wild, giving visitors a whole new experience of our big cats. 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.

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

    Your Zoo-Team
