Berlin Zoological Garden
The Berlin Zoological Garden (German: Zoologischer Garten Berlin) is the oldest and best known zoo in Germany. Opened in 1844 it covers 34 hectares (84 acres) and is located in Berlin's Tiergarten. With more than 1,500 different species and around 17,500 animals the zoo presents the most comprehensive collection of species in the world. The zoo and its aquarium had almost 3 million visitors in 2011. It is considered to be the most visited zoo in Europe and one of the most popular worldwide. Regular animal feedings are among its most famous attractions. Globally known animals like Knut, the polar bear, and Bao Bao, the Giant Panda have contributed to the zoo's public image.
I usually hate zoos as animals are kept in captivity but this one is different. The cages I saw only in the wild cats section, all others are edged by a small fence, maybe 50cm high. Lots of space and natural habitat for the animals, they really have some freedom. You can take photos no flash.
There are 2 separate tarifs, one for the Acquarium and then you have to pay again to go to the zoo.
The animals are bright, aware, and seem to be well-fed (compared to the Frankfurt zoo, where pelicans are stuffed with hay and the Washington Zoo, where ostriches have to eat the same thing) and they are allowed to observe and interact with the visitors.
In some zoos the animals hide in their houses and lie in their cages and do not pay attention to the people who come to visit the zoo.
