Celebrating responsibly

Naturally, special conditions apply to events at Zoo Berlin (especially with regard to noise levels) so that the welfare of our animals is never at risk. Every event is therefore closely supervised by Zoo staff.

Zoo Restaurant

With its large interior and idyllic lakeside terrace, the Zoo Restaurant provides an ideal venue for events of all kinds. There is space for 200 guests inside and up to 2.500 outside. The separate Lichtensteinsaal function room with its own terrace is perfect for smaller events. The menu ranges from Berlin specialities to international delicacies.

Open-air events at the Zoo

Summer sun and cool drinks – at the warmest time of year, there’s nothing better than moving the festivities outside. How about a family get-together, company event or birthday party in the middle of Zoo Berlin?


The Waldschänke restaurant is idyllically situated under the Zoo’s tall old trees. With a charming rustic interior and shady terraces, it offers a venue for any occasion from March to November. The Waldschänke can accommodate around 50 guests inside and up to 150 outside. The range of food and drink on offer can be organised according to your individual requirements.
