Tips for your visit

After Zoo, Tierpark and Aquarium Berlin were all temporarily closed on 17 March to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, from 28 April the Zoo and the Tierpark will open their gates once more – albeit with a number of restrictions. Aquarium Berlin will remain closed for the time being.

Electric train

Note: The electric train is not running now.

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 open-air stage, continuing via the cafeteria to the 'Terrassencafé Kakadu'. The just under 4-kilometre-long tour lasts approx. 20 minutes.

During off-season (Halloween to Easter Holidays) the Tierpark train runs on weekends and during holidays.

During peak season (Easter Holidays to Halloween) the Tierpark train runs daily.

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, tricycles and kick scooters are allowed for children. Bicycles must remain outside of the premises.
