Current restrictions

A modern zoo is never finished. It should undergo constant improvements to make it even better and more beautiful for animals and visitors alike. As a result, certain areas may be under construction when you visit Tierpark Berlin. Here you can find an overview of all current restrictions.

Elephant House

Tierpark Berlin will soon be home to one of the biggest and most modern elephant houses in Europe. Since a building site is no suitable home, the gentle giants have temporarily moved to other zoos and there are currently no elephants on view at the Tierpark. Once the work is finished, visitors will be able to observe a herd of African elephants roaming across an expansive savannah-like landscape.
