Animal Feedings and Shows

In addition to the daily feedings, one of the main tasks of the keepers in the Tierpark is to keep the animals entertained with the help of playful training. They demonstrate their skills in popular shows while the audience has the chance to learn more about the behaviour of their favourite animals – that makes edutainment fun for everyone!

Free-flight show

Dear guests,

Due to the avian flu all bird owners must house their animals indoors. Therefore our feathered stars are not able to train for the new season and the free-flight show can’t take place until further notice.

We hope to be able to welcome you again soon at the „Kiekemal Waldbühne”!

Tierpark Berlin is proud to present a new, high-flying attraction for all its guests. For the first time in the history of the Tierpark, visitors can now marvel at our birds of prey during a free-flight show. The feathered stars waiting to wow spectators with their aerial skills are: Frodo the African spotted eagle owl, Elba the Eurasian eagle owl, turkey vultures Bonnie and Clyde, Aron the bald eagle, and the three Harris hawks Dakota, Cheyenne and Haylie.

When: Daily from Tuesday to Sunday (30 September to 13 November) at 1:30 p.m.
Duration: 20-30 minutes
Location: Kiekemal Woodland Stage
Cost: No additional charge
