Current restrictions

A modern zoo is never finished. It should undergo constant improvements to make it even better and more beautiful for animals and visitors alike. As a result, certain areas may be under construction when you visit Zoo Berlin. Here you can find an overview of all current restrictions.

Rhino house closed

At the Zoo‘s „Löwentor“ entrance on around 14.000 m², a swampy and grassy landscape for Indian rhinos, pustular pigs, and tapirs is being built. There may occur some path closings during construction. However, the rhinos can still be visited on the habitat near the restaurant „Zoo-Talia“.

Look forward to experiencing the „grey giants“ from a different perspective and learning more about the important wildlife conservation of the vulnerable species soon.

Penguin house closed

In the penguin house, the entire visitor area will be redesigned and equipped with a new and modern exhibition. However, the Humboldt and African penguins can still be seen outside. Look forward to visiting rockhopper and king penguins in one of the coldest places in Berlin again soon and casually learning more about the popular tuxedo wearers.

Coronavirus precautions

Due to the Corona pandemic, there are still certain visit restrictions applying. You can get an overview here.
