Your visit to the zoo in these unusual times

The Zoo Berlin is not spared by the effects of the spread of the coronavirus. Therefore, visits to the zoo are currently only possible with restrictions. First things first: Anyone wishing to visit the Zoo or Tierpark must purchase a ticket in advance from our online shop. When purchasing tickets, visitors must select a specific day and a specific time slot. The tickets will then only be valid during that time. Holders of an annual pass must also book a time slot (free of charge) online before visiting. Admission will not be possible without a pre-booked slot. All further information can be found on the following pages.
