Events

Various special events take place at Tierpark Berlin throughout the year. Here you can find an overview of what’s going on.

  • November

    Weihnachten im Tierpark

    17. November – 09. January
    17:00 - 22:00

    The last admission and start of the tour is at 8:30 pm. On the following days, Weihnachten im Tierpark will be closed for visitors: 22.11./23.11., 29.11/30.11. and on 24th and 31st December 2021.

    After the great premiere in 2019, “Weihnachten im Tierpark” will reopen its doors again in 2021. At this year’s wintry highlight the Tierpark Berlin will be illuminated for the second time! Millions of lights wrap the largest zoo in Europe as well as the historic Friedrichsfelde Castle in a true starry magic and thus provide an extraordinary and contemplative atmosphere in the east of Berlin.

    “Weihnachten im Tierpark” is a pleasant alternative to the traditional Christmas markets: no hectic hustle and bustle but an idyllic atmosphere during a walk together through the festively lit park.

    Admission

    At the bear window of Tierpark Berlin you will find the entrance of Weihnachten im Tierpark. There is no entrance allowed via the gate at the castle (exit only).

    In order to provide you with the safest and most atmospheric experience possible, admission for visitors is limited per 30 minutes. Please appear during the admission time indicated on your ticket and pass the entrance within the half hour indicated on your ticket. 

    Admission is limited because we want to make sure that not too many people are in the Tierpark at the same time and that each of our visitors can enjoy a relaxing winter walk. Experience shows that especially the weekends and early evening hours are very popular. We therefore recommend that all those who are flexible should visit during the week from 7:00 pm.

    Your safety

    Please inform yourself about the current hygiene measures before your visit.
