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.

Predator house closed (incl. Nocturnal House)

Zoo Berlin’s old Predator House no longer met modern requirements for species-appropriate habitats. The bare bars and tiles are therefore now being replaced with panoramic windows and spacious landscapes that resemble the animals’ natural habitats. During renovation work, the Predator House is closed to the public, and the aardvarks, leopards, etc. are not on view. The Nocturnal House is also not accessible during this time.

Visitors can look forward to an extra-special predator experience at the 'Empire of Cats' once the work is completed. And the first inhabitants have already moved in – you can see our Siberian tigers and lions enjoying their natural outdoor enclosure.
