Celebrating 180 years of Zoo Berlin

To kick off our anniversary year, we gave Jiao Qing an ice-cold surprise.

The giant panda was delighted to receive an ice bomb made from frozen beet juice - and a huge portion of bamboo, of course. The giant pandas in Berlin are unique in Germany. Jiao has lived in the capital together with female panda Meng Meng since 2017. However, the history of the bamboo bears goes back a little further: Happy, Tjen Tjen, Bao Bao and others have already joined the "Hall of Panda Fame".

➡ Want to find out more about the animal icons, historic places and exciting personalities of Zoo Berlin? Over the next few weeks, we'll be taking you on a little journey through time. Every week until the zoo's official birthday at the beginning of August, we provide you with exciting facts from the last 180 years.
