Current Restrictions

Like at any modern zoo, work at Zoo Berlin is never really done. We are constantly trying to improve the zoo to make it a better place and more beautiful for animals and visitors alike. That is why you may come across construction work during your visit. Below you can find information on current construction projects and other restrictions.

Construction works in the Aquarium

In the course of a general modernization, there are construction works in the Aquarium that cause restrictions – the following areas are affected currently:

  • The passage between the Zoo and the Aquarium is closed. Entrance and exit of the Aquarium are therefore located on the side facing „Budapester Straße“ only (also applies to combined tickets). Please also note the signage on site.
  • The third floor – the home of insects and amphibians – is closed.
  • The regular elevator inside the building is closed. Alternatively, another elevator is available. Please note the signage on site.

Please note that the Aquarium Berlin is a separate attraction on the Zoo premises, which requires a separate ticket (or alternatively a combined ticket) for visiting. Please find further information here.

Construction works at the Empire of Cats

The outdoor facilities for Jaguar & Co. are being extended at the Empire of Cats. There may therefore be restrictions for visitors around the experience world. However, the animals can still be seen.
