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.

The Zoo Berlin is closed

A bird at Zoo Berlin tested positive for bird flu. Therefore, the Zoo remains closed to guests as a precaution. The Aquarium Berlin as well as the Tierpark Berlin are still open as usual.

Current information can always be found here.

Rhino House Closed

Close to our Löwentor entrance, we are working on a new 14,000 sq. m. habitat for Indian rhinos, pustular pigs and tapirs. Due to the construction work, some paths may be closed off temporarily. For the time being the rhinos can be seen in their current habitat near the „Zoo-Talia“ restaurant.

Soon you can look forward to seeing these gray giants from a whole new perspective, while also learning more about the conservation of this vulnerable species.
