The Tierpark’s expansive landscaped grounds provide plenty of space to escape from big-city life.
What do our giraffes eat for breakfast? How much fresh fruit and vegetables do we need for the monkeys? Each and every creature in our care has its very own meal plan. And with around 10,000 animals, our shopping list includes an awful lot of carrots, peppers and hay!
In our free-flight show, bald eagles, Eurasian eagle owls and more show off their aerial acrobatics. Over the 3,300 m2 woodland stage, owls and other birds of prey demonstrate their intelligence, while visitors learn exciting raptor facts.
This is the vast number of eggs we feed our monkeys, polar bears and more every year.
The 10,000 animals at the Tierpark eat an average of 21 bananas per day. The tasty fruit contains a lot of sugar, so it only features on the menu as an occasional treat.
Rothschild giraffes can reach dizzying heights.
The king cobra is one of the largest venomous snakes on the planet.
Ostriches may not be able to fly, but they are pretty damn fast on the ground.
The Amur tiger is the biggest cat on earth.
Zoo and Tierpark Berlin not only strive to get people from all over the world excited about nature and to raise awareness of the need to protect it – we also want to make our own sustainable contribution to species conservation. With the help of our supporters, we fund innovative projects around the globe that are working to protect endangered species. Species conservation starts at home, and every individual can make an important contribution to saving wildlife.
In one study, researchers are focusing on the snow leopards of Mongolia. Thanks to the support of Zoo and Tierpark Berlin, they have been able to equip the rare big cats with GPS collars. The resulting data helps protective measures to be implemented more effectively.
