Guided children’s birthday tours at Zoo Berlin

Birthday boys and girls can embark on an exciting expedition through the zoo with their party guests, accompanied by our knowledgeable guides. With the help of clues such as tracks, scraps of fur, antlers and more, the group work together to find their way from animal to animal.

Our birthday tours are designed according to the age of the group and are also suitable for previous visitors. The tours run in all weather.
