Tips for your visit

Tierpark train

An electric train travels around the Tierpark Berlin, which offers a hop-on, hop-off service. To allow easier accessibility of the Tierpark, the train travels from the 'Bärenschaufenster' bear viewing window entrance to the open-air stage, continuing via the cafeteria to the palace and back to the bear-viewing window. The just under 4-kilometre-long tour lasts approx. 20 minutes.


Handcart rental

Tierpark Berlin can also be explored by handcart. This is ideal for the tired legs of children or lots of bags. The rental stations can be found at the entrances.

Rental price: €5 (deposit: €10)


Bikes and training bikes

Training bikes are allowed for children up to 5 years of age. Bikes must remain outside of the premises
