Activities for adults

    Animal encounters

    Are you in love with rhinos, capyaras or aardvarks? How would you like to have a close encounter with your favourite animal at Zoo Berlin? Zoo staff will introduce you personally and share their expert knowledge – as well as one or two amusing anecdotes.


    Early Panda

    The Giant Pandas are one of the absolute favorites of the Zoo's guests. Therefore, there are usually crowds around the Panda Garden. With this ticket you have the opportunity to visit the male Panda Jiao Qing exclusively before the Zoo opens and before all other guests arrive - just in time for the morning bamboo breakfast and perfect for unique photos! In addition, Zoo staff will tell you exciting Panda facts and answer all your questions.



    Embark on a special tour of discovery through Zoo Berlin with one of our experienced guides. Get ready to learn fascinating animal facts and gain exclusive insight into daily life at the Zoo!


    Evening tours

    An evening stroll around Zoo Berlin after the gates have closed to regular visitors is a wonderful way to end the day. Which animals get active at dusk, and who is allowed to sleep outside? On one of our guided evening tours you will learn the answers to these questions as well as many more animal secrets.
