History of Tierpark Berlin
On 27 August 1954, the Berlin Magistrate decided to establish a zoo (‘Tierpark’) in Friedrichsfelde. One year later, on 2 July 1955, the counterpart to West Berlin’s Zoological Garden opened on the site of the former Friedrichsfelde Palace gardens: the Tierpark Berlin. The zoologist Prof. Dr Heinrich Dathe became its very first director – a position he retained until his 80th birthday for over 30 years
